Economic History & History of Capitalism

Economic History blends the study of economics with statistical analyses and historical research methods. Students can explore many topics related to regulation, banking, insurance, finance, business, entrepreneurship, and the economic issues of the past and present. This field often overlaps with some aspects of social history, including labor history. Our faculty cover a wide range of areas, and students can work with faculty members specialized in American, African American, Latin American, Southeast Asian, and Middle Eastern economics histories.
