The project on the global history of energy is based at the Joint Center for History and Economics and the MIT Research Group on History, Energy, and Environment. The project explores how the historical study of energy use and transformation can widen perspectives of economic, social, and environmental processes in the past. It also serves as a forum for the historical discussion of energy in all its forms in a global and comparative context.
The Energy History Project is supported by a Large-Scale Seed Grant from the Harvard Center for the Environment. Participants include Sunil Amrith (Birkbeck/ Centre for History and Economics), Richard Hornbeck (Harvard), Ian Miller (Harvard), Harriet Ritvo (MIT), Emma Rothschild (Harvard) and Paul Warde (UEA/Centre for History and Economics).
