FRESH meetings are aimed at researchers in any field of economic and social history. The meetings build on the concept that scholars present their ongoing research at an early stage, i.e. normally before it becomes published as a working paper or the like, and certainly before it is published in books or journals. The main aim of the meetings is to gather researchers in a friendly and collegial environment where they can present their research and receive constructive criticism from their peers.
The FRESH meeting organizers strive to accommodate as many speakers as possible. Accepted papers will normally receive 30 minutes each (20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion). However, in the interest of avoiding parallel sessions, the presentation time may be shortened.
The organizers can offer lunch, dinner and other refreshments on the day of the meeting, but hotels and travel must be covered by the participants themselves. Also, there will be a registration fee for this meeting of 70 EUR payable on acceptance of your submission.
Prospective speakers should submit a one‐page abstract and a short CV to email@example.com no later than May 31, 2012.
Notification of acceptance will be given by mid June 2012.
