Abstract

Aktuelle wirtschaftshistorische Forschung belegt, dass vergangene historische Begebenheiten einen großen Einfluss auf aktuelle wirtschaftliche und soziale Entwicklungen haben. Auf der Konferenz »The Long Shadow of History« kamen international renommierte Wissenschaftler am Center for Advanced Studies (CAS) der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in München zusammen, um über die historische Persistenz wirtschaftlicher Prozesse zu diskutieren. Mit dieser Konferenz wurde der Grundstein für den Aufbau eines Netzwerkes von Wissenschaftlern gelegt, die auf diesem Gebiet forschen. In diesem Beitrag werden ein Einblick in dieses neue Forschungsfeld gegeben und die Forschungsprojekte, die auf der Konferenz vorgestellt wurden, zusammengefasst.
