On Saturday, September 30th, at the end of the 8th ASE Annual Meeting, the awarding committee, composed by Prof. Gabriele Cappelli (University of Siena), Prof. Andrea Colli (Bocconi University), Prof. Maria Carmela Schisani (Federico II University, Naples), announced the winner of the 2023 edition of the Francesca Carnevali Prize.
The Francesca Carnevali Prize is awarded every year to the best Bachelor and Master of Science thesis in economic history. In its first meeting, ASE decided to dedicate this prize for young economic historians to the memory of Francesca Carnevali (1964-2013).
This year, the prize went to Robert Duncan Mitchell, for his bachelor dissertation, defended at Newcastle University, Re-thinking Wage Determination: Quantifying the wage effects of self-restriction in the mid-nineteenth century Northern Coalfield. Well done Robert!
