The Centre for Financial History was founded in 2008 and is based at Darwin College, Cambridge. Its mission is to facilitate cutting-edge research in financial history and to encourage its application to economic theory and to public policy. The Centre serves the Cambridge community as one of the seven constituent centres of Cambridge Finance, and brings together financial historians at British and Irish institutions to work on collaborative ventures. The Centre runs a Seminar series in Lent and Easter terms, as well as a graduate workshop throughout the academic year.
The conference sessions will be held in Darwin College’s Old Library and Seminar Room No. 1 on Newnham Terrace, which can both be accessed from the Main Entrance on Silver Street.
