I. History of Experimental Economics
II. Transformations of Economics through the Lens of Collective Biography
Traditionally, the history of economic thought has been presented as a succession of great minds and their ideas. This approach ignores the role of the networks within which economists operate, how their ideas diffuse and gain scientific credit, and it overlooks the explosion of the number of economists in the postwar period. Any narrative of transformation of economics - mathematical formalization, modeling, econometrics, and more recently experimentation - will be incomplete if it fails to analyze both the structure and the modes of operation of such networks. To study such networks, I employ prosopography, or collective biography, a method that identifies and draws relationships between various people within a specific, well-defined historical or social context by collecting and analyzing statistically relevant biographical data. Whereas it is an established historiographic method, it has not been systematically applied to the history of economics.
