Historia del Pensamiento Económico en la AEHE

Estimados/as socios/as: Tradicionalmente, la Historia del Pensamiento Económico ha sido considerada un área independiente de la Historia de la Economía. Por ello, hemos considerado oportuno introducir una nueva sección dentro de la web de la AEHE dedicada exclusivamente a la Historia del Pensamiento Económico. En ella tienen cabida, las revistas, congresos y publicaciones especializadas en esta área de conocimiento. Así mismo se ha habilitado un apartado de Docencia en HPE que albergará recursos y contenidos que esperamos sean de ayuda para los docentes de esta disciplina.

Legal Records at Risk Project

You will find a brief description on our website (http://ials.sas.ac.uk/news/Legal_Records_at_Risk_project_at_IALS.htm), but to give you a little more background our terms of reference and intended outcomes are attached. We hope, in short, to provide practical assistance to institutions specialised to law which may be seeking advice on how to manage their institutional records, dispose of those for which they have no further business need and preserve those of value for posterity. We believe that the records of such institutions may provide a rich resource for historians in many fields (academic, legal, social, geographic etc) and that they should therefore not be overlooked by researchers. Many institutions specialised to law are, of course, also businesses, hence my email to you.

It appears from our preliminary research that legal business records are more at risk now than in the past. Most local archive repositories, as I am sure you know, are exceedingly strapped for cash in the current economic climate and may have to start refusing to accept business records unless a) businesses assume more responsibility for the sensible listing and conservation of their records prior to transfer and/or b) the archives are given some financial incentive to collect the records eg a donation by the businesses to help cover the cost of transfer and preservation.

I don’t think it is in anyone’s interest to see a black hole appearing in the UK’s legal/business history, given the enormous research potential of the records, and I see our project as having mutually beneficial effects for researchers, ourselves and archives. It would be valuable to hear your Associations views on all this, and particularly useful to find out just how business historians view the research potential of records of solicitors, barristers, arbiters, legal executives etc.

EH.net is looking for syllabi

The teaching section of EH.net is currently collecting syllabi from recently taught courses in economic history. Syllabi on any aspect of economic history at the graduate or undergraduate level are welcome. Please email Cong Liu at the University of Arizona (congliu) with your submission, university where the course was taught, general area and time period of the material (e.g., United States after 1860, Interwar Europe, etc), and the level of instruction (e.g., undergraduate or graduate). Finally, please put "EH.net Syllabus" in the subject line.

Sincerely,

Jeremy Atack’s Historical Transportation SHP files for the United States

I have posted my historical GIS transportation SHP files for the Lower 48 states from this nation’s founding through (approximately) 1911 on my www site https://my.vanderbilt.edu/jeremyatack/data-downloads/. Each transportation mode–canals, steamboat-navigated (as opposed to navigable) rivers, and railroads–has its own archive ZIP file which contains the complete series of files (projection, database and polyline files, etc.) required by ESRI’s ArcGIS and ArcGIS Pro. These are collectively referred to as “a SHP file” though there are actually multiple files for each mode of transportation. Once unpacked, these files for each SHP must be kept together and should only be edited using a GIS program. If corrupted, the entire SHP file will become unusable.

The metadata file (.XML) briefly describes the contents of each SHP, the manner in which it was created, and summarizes any edits since these files were originally posted. Issues relating to the creation of these SHP files are discussed in much greater detail in the documentation file also appearing at https://my.vanderbilt.edu/jeremyatack/data-downloads/.

FT to open archives to researchers via British Library

‏@MESandbu: FT digital archives open to academic research | FT Data http://on.ft.com/1KzYrh0

The Financial Times is working with the British Library to open up access to FT Digital Archive for academic research.

Extracts from the archive materials were used to produce the feature about Britain’s 1975 referendum on European Community membership that was published on FT.com today.

The archive consists of scanned images of each of the 903,029 pages comprising all 37,464 print editions of the Financial Times published between 1888 and 2010.

For each page, the archive consists of a high-resolution image file of the scanned page and a large XML file that includes the full text of the page (generated by optical character recognition software) and detailed metadata about the position of each scanned word. The full 123-year dataset is 2.5 terabytes in size.

In addition to researchers interested in 20th-century economic history, this vast dataset is likely to be of interest to linguists interested in studying a large corpus of specialist news, or computer scientists interested in techniques for digitising large volumes of printed documents.

FT journalists and developers will be participating in a British Library hackathon on November 16 to explore how these datasets can be used.

Dear Bernardo,

Thank you for your email about the FT’s newspaper archives. Their announcement is a little misleading, because it implies that the whole of the archive is available now for academic research, which isn’t quite the case. The FT’s newspaper archive has been available under subscription via CengageGale and continues to be so (http://gale.cengage.co.uk/financial-times-historical-archive.aspx0, but no longer exclusively so. We have been in discussion with the FT about how to open up the archive to different kinds of research, particularly data-driven research, and to make this freely available. To kick things off, they have made available four years of content, as JPEG images and XML – 1888, 1939, 1966 and 1991 – with a licence agreement that research teams can sign in to, and access to be provided via a BL FTP server.

This arrangement will last until the end of this calendar year, after which we hope to negotiate an extension with the FT, opening up more of the archive. So we are currently in a test phase, and we are keen for researchers to start working with the test data, so that we can feed back the results to the FT and plan ahead appropriately. If you are interested is making use of the test data, let me know and I’ll get you added to the licence agreement. Or you may be interested in the news hackathon that we will be hosting on November 16th, which will feature data from the FT archives and other news collections that we hold here.

Regards

Luke
