The blog History of Economics Playground began in November 2007. We were brought together as the youth of the history of economics. In a field that honors the discrete and collected elder, we want to brave new ground. We want to be serious about being playful.
We will trade references. We will review books. We will bear witness to seminars and conferences. We will debate and gossip and express our feelings about life in scholarship. The blog is our venue to peer into new subjects, rehearse fresh connections, and reframe old debates in the history of economics. The terms of our senior colleagues and supervisors need not be our own.
With each post and the flow of comments from our visitors, the blog heads in unanticipated directions. It is an unbound and uncommitted forum.
