Emma Rothschild has been awarded the 2022 Guggenheim Prize for the History of Economic Thought at the Accademia dei Lincei in Rome. We congratulate her warmly.
The Joint Centre for History and Economics mourns the death of Sir Tony Wrigley, a dear friend of the Centre for more than thirty years. His work was of foundational importance to economic history, the history of economic ideas, and the history of population, energy and work. He was a Research Associate of the Cambridge Centre, and a member of the Centre’s Executive Committee from 1998 to 2011. We will miss him greatly.
David K. Richards (1939-2015) was a friend and adviser to the Joint Centre for History and Economics, at Cambridge and at Harvard, over many years. He was a participant in Centre events, a wonderful observer of economic history, and, with Carol Richards, an immensely generous supporter of the Centre's work. One of the many interviews with him, in Barron's, began, "Of all the people we interview, David Richards strikes the deepest chord with readers. His interviews seem to be the ones that get tacked to walls or saved in a desk drawer, treasures of insight and wisdom." We miss him greatly.
The Joint Centre for History and Economics (JCHE) 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.
The Centre is supported by a generous gift from the David K. and Carol Richards Fund. In cooperation with its counterpart Centre at Harvard, the Cambridge Centre undertakes research projects and organizes workshops, seminars and exchanges of faculty and graduate students. It provides the base for the History Project, and for current research projects on Exchanges of Economic, Legal and Political Ideas; Energy History and Gender Bias in India.
