2023 University Of Manchester Quantifying The Long Run History Of Africa
In 2004 the University of Manchester was established through the merger of the Victoria University of Manchester and the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST).
These institutions had before now collaborated closely for a century before deciding to unite as a single university. On the 22nd of October 2004 the official amalgamation took place, creating the largest single-site university in the UK.
Both entities have a rich and inspiring history which the University continues to build upon with pioneering research and its commitment to educational excellence.
Study Program: –

The conference is free of charge thanks to our secured ESRC funding which will cover expenses for catering, dinner & travel, and accommodation costs for graduate students lacking financial support from their institutions.
We anticipate a diverse group of presenters including both junior and senior scholars. Depending on the outcome of other funding applications, we may offer additional assistance to those who require it to attend.
However it is unlikely that we can fully cover travel and accommodation expenses for all participants. Tenured faculty members in particular, will be responsible for their own travel and accommodation costs.
Accommodation: Regarding accommodation, we recommend Hyatt Regency for on-campus lodging. For attendees seeking more budget-friendly options, Luther King House is suggested.
Our main intention is to welcome research papers that covers various epochs of African economic history while placing particular emphasis on the period predating 1950.
While submissions covering all historical timeframes will be considered we aim to prioritize studies that centers on the economic developments and trends before the year 1950 in Africa.
By directing attention to this specific timeframe we actually seek to gain deeper insights into the continent’s economic trajectory and its role in shaping Africa’s economic history.
Scholars are encouraged to submit their work for consideration and we anticipate facilitating enriching discussions and scholarly contributions that illuminate Africa’s economic past.
