Apprentices depended on masters to train and support them; and masters depended on their apprentices to work diligently to keep their workshops in business. Often living in close proximity for many years, the relationship that a master and apprentice built between them was an essential element in the success of an apprenticeship. Yet how was this relationship made to work? And when and why did it break down? This workshop brings together economic and social historians to explore the nature and characteristics of the master-apprentice relationship as it existed across Europe between the sixteenth and the nineteenth centuries.

Speakers: Laura Gowing, Jeff Horn, Jonathan Barry, Jose Nieto Sánchez,  Ida Juul, Leonard Rosenband, Lars Edgren, Sietske Van den Wyngaert and Merja Uotila.
