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 a series of reading and discussion groups since 2019: see below for the reading lists.

In late 2020, the project published a virtual issue of Past and Present on ‘Capitalism in Global History’, consisting of a series of classic articles along with an introduction by the network organisers – this introduction remains freely available online. The virtual issue was accompanied by 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.
