From its inception, the C2DH has decided to make the history of the Luxembourg financial place one of its main research priorities. In this context, the 'Finlux' reading group is meeting on a monthly basis. It is a place for researchers to discuss banking and financial history and to reflect on how to best write the history of the Luxembourg financial centre going forward. To broaden its perspective, the group regularly invites experts from all around Europe.
The first meetings of the new academic year will take place on:
26 September 2017
Frédéric Clavert (University of Luxembourg) presents his new research-project: "Débats monétaires ‘non supervisés’ en ligne: comment faire la ‘pré-"histoire’ de l'euro à partir des sources nées numériques en ligne. "
24 October 2017
Simon Watteyne (Université libre de Bruxelles) introduces us to his PhD project on fiscal policies in Belgium during the 20th century.
28 November 2017
Jean-Luc Deshayes (Université de Tours) will introduce us to "L'emploi bancaire au Luxembourg: une lecture en termes d'espace social localisé".
19 December 2017
For the final session of 2017, we will welcome Emmanuel Mourlon-Druol who will present his ERC-project: "EURECON: the Making of a Lopsided Union: Economic Integration in the European Economic Community, 1957-1992".
