Last week, it was announced during the annual meeting of the Economic History Society, that Corinne Boter has won the Thirsk Feinstein Prize for best dissertation 2018. Corinne defended her thesis on 16 July 2017 at Wageningen University and was supervised by Ewout Frankema and myself.
It goes without saying that I am very proud of Corinne, and I wish to congratulate her with this great achievement. Corinne’s dissertation, Dutch Divergence? Women’s work, structural change, and household living standards in the Netherlands, 1830-1914 can be found online here.
