Archival Workshop

Digital rebirth of historical datasets

30 Jun 2022

1000 Sofia, Bulgaria

eabh in cooperation with the Bulgarian National Bank (BNB)

Central banks and other financial institutions have longstanding histories and rich archives. These contain extensive sets of historical information and hence are an extremely valuable source of knowledge about the evolution of financial institutions’ functions and mandates; as much as the trajectory of financial systems and the economic development of countries and regions.

In this workshop we will check up key quantitative historical financial data, historical dataset accessibility and IT tools and innovation.

Call for Papers is open now!

Conference

Monetary unions in history

1 Jul 2022

1000 Sofia, Bulgaria

eabh in cooperation with the Bulgarian National Bank (BNB)

This conference will discuss the phenomenon of currency unions in a global historical context with a special focus on the challenges brought about by trends of isolationism and confrontation.

Motivation, design and factors explaining the resilience (or the lack thereof) of currency unions will be among the themes to discuss; – against a backdrop of captivating historical, geographic and institutional experiences.

As history continues into modern-day initiatives like the Economic and Monetary Union in the EU, a glimpse into the future of currency unions may also engage the conference agenda.

A platform to distil academic and policy insights, the event should attract scholars as well as central bankers interested in both the theory and historical experience of currency unions.

Archival Workshop

GDPR & Historical Archives

2021

Frankfurt am Main, Germany

eabh in cooperation with the European Central Bank

This workshop aims to look at the impact of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on historical archives, in particular, but not exclusively, in the financial sector.

Since May 2018, the GDPR has set common standards of data protection within the European Union and, to a certain extent, beyond. This regulation received critical acclaim by the public and scholars alike, however not without facing wide criticism for the severity of the changes it requires to implement.

What is new for historical archives under the GDPR regime?
