Economics and the Development of Africa
YSI Workshop @ 13th Annual Meeting of the African Economic History Network
The YSI Africa Working Group is convening in Bologna, Italy in conjunction with the 13th Annual Meeting of the African Economic History Network. Our meeting in Bologna follows what promises to be a successful convention in August 2018 at the YSI Africa Convening in Harare, Zimbabwe. The YSI Africa Working Group is committed to continuing important conversations about how economic history can contribute to the study of development of Africa. We are particularly interested in thinking about the types of new approaches to the study of economics and economic history.

In collaboration with the Collective Learning Group at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
