Start of a new year

The start of the new academic year is drawing ever closer and slowly Utrecht is filling up with students and university employees again. The absence of many Utrechters is most noticeable in the summer months when the bike jams at various bottlenecks shrink dramatically in size but now the exchange students are very much in evidence, wobbling slightly as they brave the Utrecht bike-paths.

We at Economic and Social History are excited to start this new year. We have put together a new thematic package “The Great Challenges”, and are looking forward to meeting the students who enrolled for this series of courses! We hope to involve students actively on this blog so hopefully you will see a number of contributions by them in the near future!
