The Joint Centre is delighted to congratulate Tyler Goodspeed, Research Associate of the Harvard Center and Prize Research Student at the Cambridge Centre, 2008-2009, on the award of the 2014 Alexander Gerschenkron Prize of the Economic History Association "for the best dissertation in the economic history of an area outside of the United States or Canada."
The Joint Centre for History and Economics is based at Magdalene College and King's College, University of Cambridge, and at the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University. It was established in 1991 to promote research and education in fields of importance for historians and economists, including the history of economic and social thought, economic history and the application of economic concepts to historical problems. The objective of the Centre is to encourage fundamental research in history, economics, and related disciplines. It also encourages the participation of historians and economists in addressing issues of public importance.
