Political Economy and Culture in Global History


Political Economy and Culture in Global History is a research network organised by Peter Hill, Andrew Edwards, and Juan Neves-Sarriegui, and hosted at the University of Oxford and Northumbria University, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

See here for the project’s original statement of intent.

The project has run series of reading and discussion groups over 2019: see below for the reading lists.

The project recently published a virtual issue of Past and Present on ‘Capitalism in Global History’, which makes a series of classic articles freely available online, along with our introduction. Accompanying this is a series of blog posts by group members, hosted by the Past and Present Society.

See here for related initiatives group members are involved in.

Political Economy and Culture in Global History is currently supported by the Past & Present Society, the Institute of Humanities at Northumbria University, and the Global History of Capitalism Project, University of Oxford. It was previously funded by Christ Church Research Centre, University of Oxford.
