Description: The economic history as a field combining economics and history leads students to in-debt and better understanding of individual economic processes in connection with the political and social development of society. The course offers the modern method of global economic history – comparing the economic development throughout the 20th century across different cultural and geopolitical areas, in which various models of growth broke through and the everchanging global economic conditions had different effects. Economic proccesses in the national and transnational scope will be incorporated into lectures as well as some of the subdisciplines of economic history: the history of commerce, the history of industry and agriculture, the history of money and banking, the history of transport, the history of labour and the history of science, business history, social history and the historical demography. The seminar will introduce students to traditional and modern methods of economic history on the one hand and with classical and latest economic history texts on the other.
