Dr Tijl Vanneste
Honorary Associate Research Fellow
I am mainly interested in the development of international commerce in the early modern period, and consequences regarding globalization, modernity and the forging of identities. I advocate a socio-cultural approach to economic history, and research interests are cross-cultural trading networks, diasporas and global connections of different kinds linking different actors such as merchants and seamen. Wider areas include history of the Mediterranean, Brazilian history and Atlantic history.
