Research Group: Economy and Society
Coordination: Bruno Zorek
The Economy and Society Research Group promotes critical reflection and dialogue between Economic History, Social History, Intellectual History, Science Studies, Historical Sociology, Political Economy and Anthropology. Its researchers are dedicated to the study of various topics, including issues of gender, labour, migration, sports, military history, associativism, technology, economic thinking, heritage, or inequality, seeking to contribute to a more accurate knowledge of the contemporary economic and social
The group’s initiatives span several temporal and spatial scales, questioning both the criteria that govern historical periodization and the existing relationships between the local, the national, and the global, without losing sight of the main theoretical and methodological debates that cross the fields of History and Social Sciences.
