Economic History

The LSESU Economic History Society believes economic history can teach us a lot about the present. We bring together people from all disciplines for activities and events on economic history.

About us

We are the academic society for Economic History! We are here to build a sense of community among students interested in Economic History through running socials and events, as well as working to provide students with insights into as many academic and professional opportunities as possible. In the past, these have included pub quizzes, screenings of EH documentaries with those who made them, lectures and debates, as well as setting up what became the now independent Knowles Review of Economic History, a student-run peer-reviewed Economic History journal where you can submit your best work to be professionally published by Houghton Street press.

This year, we will be introducing a thee branch System into the LSESU Economic History Society! As represented by the three banners on our logo, these branches are the Economic History Academia (Cyan), the Economic History Guild (Orange), and the Economic History Tavern (Dark Teal), where we will offer academic, career, and social events for our society members. Keep on the lookout for the events of your choosing, which will be represented by their designated colours. 

We want every student to feel part of the Economic History community and so in the coming year we will be looking to expand our work into how Economic History at LSE can be decolonised and diversified, and into how we can support the voices students from marginalised backgrounds.

Membership

Our single tier of membership costs £3 and will give you access to all of our society's events, including our debates, career and networking events, and larger trips as a society. These events will give you many opportunities to meet like-minded individuals and learn more about economic history. You will also get access to our monthly newsletters, where we will announce all upcoming events exclusive to members.
