Economic & Social History


Economic and social history is the study of the way societies change in their economic activities and social organisation. It is concerned with how people in the past lived and worked, and how this has affected the development of today’s world.

At Nottingham, historians working with social and/or economic methodologies cover a chronological range from the 13th Century to the present day. The Department for History hosts the Centre for Economic and Business History (CEBH) that acts to generate academic collaborations and stimulate student research in this field.
