ETRANHET Kick-Off Webinar
From 16h to 17h45 (CET)
To mark the kick-off of the ERC-funded project, “Energy Transitions in the History of Economic Thought” (ETRANHET), we would like to draw your attention to a Zoom webinar that will take place on March 9, 16:00-17:45 CET (10:00-11:45 EST) about the role of economic expertise in the history of energy and environmental issues. The ETRANHET project aims at contributing to understanding the current energy situation from the standpoint of the history of economic thought, by examining the role of economists and of the economic discipline in shaping past representations of energy (and energy policies), all around the world.
This webinar will be introduced by Prof. Christopher F. Jones (Arizona State University), who will give a talk on his forthcoming book on “the invention of infinite growth.” Then we will present the objectives of the ETRANHET project to discuss collectively the research questions associated with it.
