Current Research Projects
Exchanges of Economic, Legal and Political Ideas
The project, which is based at Harvard and the University of Cambridge over the period 2010-2015, is concerned with the history of political and economic thought in a large context of economic, religious, and legal history, and with exchanges across long distances in Asia, Europe and the Atlantic world.
Energy History Project
The Global History of Energy project is concerned with the historical study of energy use and transformation, and how it can increase understanding of economic, social, and environmental processes in the past. The project also serves as a forum for the historical discussion of energy in all its forms.
The Joint Center for History and Economics supports research on the history of economic life and the history of economic thought, in different periods and places, and from different disciplinary perspectives.
