Welcome to Queen's University Centre for Economic History
Queen's University Centre for Economic History (QUCEH) is an interdisciplinary research centre based at Queen's University Belfast. It brings together faculty and graduate students working on the economic study of the past from across the university and elsewhere.
We are pleased to announce that four QUCEH Research Associates have just been promoted to Senior Lecturer at Queen's University Belfast: Graham Brownlow, Chris Colvin, Alan de Bromhead and Alan Fernihough.
QUCEH will host a book workshop on 30 May for Will Quinn and John Turner's forthcoming book on the economic history of bubbles and crashes. More information is available here.
Economic History Society Annual Conference 2019
QUCEH hosted the EHS conference. For more details, see the EHS website.
History Now is a history talk show presented by Barry Sheppard and produced by local Belfast television station Northern Visions Television. In each episode, Barry brings together a group of academic or professional historians to discuss a topic in Irish history. QUCEH members have featured in a number of episodes.
The Long Run Initiative
The Long Run Initiative is a not-for-profit forum co-run by members of QUCEH. The Initiative is founded on three precepts: (1) to demonstrate the practical value of historical expertise to contemporary decision makers; (2) to create dialogue between academics, businesses and government; and (3) to provide an independent and international perspective on the challenges facing business and society.
