Rare collection of price currents digitized at the IISH

Wed, 2022-08-03 10:33

The IISH is proud to present a new online collection: the digitized price currents. What was the price of candied ginger sold in 1679 Amsterdam? How much did elephant teeth cost in 1817 in Amiens? Growing trade meant a growing demand for information on market at the end of the Middle Ages. The solution were printed lists that showed traded goods with the current prices next to it, often written by hand. These price currents from as early as the 16th century and from all over the world give us a wealth of information on past economic life.

CfP: Warring for the Nation Armed Conflicts, Mass Mobilization and Nation-Building in East-Central Europe between 1789 and 1922

Mon, 2022-07-25 10:13

As recent examples in contemporary Europe clearly show, the role of armed conflicts in the state- and nation-building processes should not be underestimated in the contemporary era. This is even more evident when considering the history of Europe in the “long nineteenth century”: the massive interdependences between bellicism and nation have played a crucial role in the processes of collective identity-making since at least the French Revolution.
