A virtual format has important advantages, namely, by abolishing physical constraints, so we can have more participants joining in from compatible time zones than conventional seminars. This is good for the presenters, who are exposed to a broader audience and also for the audience, who can choose to attend seminar series closer to their own research interests. This advantage is greater for specialised sub-disciplines. This is why we launched a seminar in macro history. Finally, co-ordinating a joint seminar series provides economies of scale in time use.

The seminar meets on Tuesdays at 4pm CET from 21 April to 9 June.

The first presenter will be François Velde from the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, on “What Happened to the US Economy During the 1918 Influenza Pandemic? A View Through High-Frequency Data”.
