The Young Scholars Initiative (YSI), in collaboration with the Economic and Business History Society (EBHS) and the CITCEM – University of Porto, will hold a doctoral workshop for 8 doctoral students on Wednesday, May 24th at the University of Porto. The aim of this one-day workshop is to support the career and research development as well as networking of new scholars in the fields of economic and business history, broadly conceived. The workshop will include paper development presentations by doctoral students, followed by feedback and discussion with the leadership of the EBHS, as well as mentorship panels on academic publishing, the academic job-market, and career development in economic and business history.

If selected for participation, doctoral students will receive: financial support for travel to and from Porto; two nights accommodation for Tuesday, May 23 and Wednesday, May 24; and free registration and automatic paper acceptance for the EBHS conference. The workshop is open to applications from doctoral students across the world undertaking a PhD in the fields of economic and business history, broadly conceived. This includes research in management, financial, labor, legal, and social history, including the history of capitalism and economic thought. The EBHS is committed to diversity and inclusion, and we especially encourage applications from doctoral students from under-represented groups.
