This is a major research project currently being undertaken at the University of Exeter.This European Research Council funded project, led by Dr Maria Fusaro, will analyse the economic transition in Early Modern Europe through a comparative study of the contractual conditions and economic treatment of sailors active in the Mediterranean, employing an innovative interdisciplinary approach using tools from legal, economic and social history.
More details can be read here. This excellent project has now led to a call for papers for participation in a panel that has been organised for the XVII World Economic History Congress, which is taking place in August 2015 in Kyoto.
