Welcome to APHES

Contributing to the progress in the knowledge of the Economic and Social History since 1980



YouTube channel dedicated to 40 years of APHES


The Portuguese Association of Economic and Social History turns 40 and the date is a good motive to assess the evolution of Economic and Social History and its prospects. For that purpose we have created a YouTube channel where you can find seven interviews with former presidents of the association reflecting on the evolution of the field (in Portuguese).
