From its inception, the C²DH has decided to make the history of the Luxembourg financial centre one of its main research priorities. In this context, the 'FinLux' seminar is held on a monthly basis. It is a place for researchers to discuss ongoing research projects in banking and financial history in a broad sense. The fundamental theme of the seminars is a reflection on which topics, actors, sources, and methods can be used to write the history of the Luxembourg financial centre.
All sessions start at 18:00 sharp at the Digital History Lab (Maison des Sciences humaines, 1st floor). The presentations this semester will be in either French or English. Please e-mail Benoit Majerus in case you wish to participate.
