CAGE Webinar - Why Isn't the Whole World Developed?
As part of our school video series, we are hosting a live webinar with academics from the University of Warwick and the LSE to consider how history and economics interlink.
Time & Location
10 May, 14:00 – 15:00
About the event
The CAGE Research Centre and Discover Economics have released a new video series for students aged 15–17 to explore why the economies of Africa and India are less developed than others. Join our event to learn more. Perfect for Economics and History classes.
Drawing on its world class expertise in economic history and its global academic network, CAGE has brought together internationally renowned experts – associates, friends and alumni of CAGE and the University of Warwick – to explore the long-term impacts of colonisation and imperial interventions on the economy and society of Africa and India.
The project is delivered in partnership with Discover Economics, a campaign co-founded by the Royal Economic Society, whose aim is to increase diversity among economics students at university and those studying as an apprenticeship.
The speakers include:
Bishnupriya Gupta- Research Director of CAGE and Professor of Economics University of Warwick.
Claudia Rei- Associate Professor and Director of Studies UG at University of Warwick.
Noam Yuchtman- Professor at LSE
The team hope that the videos will offer a new depth and variety to colonial history teaching in schools and will demonstrate to students the importance of economics for understanding history, and of economic history for understanding the modern economy.
