In 'The Atlantic in the Interior' Emma Rothschild will explore how a small town in the middle of eighteenth-century France was affected by distant and Atlantic events – and by influences from Spain and the Spanish Atlantic in particular.
Professor Rothschild works on the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, particularly economic history and the history of economic thought. Her recent publications include 'Isolation and Economic Life in Eighteenth-Century France' (American Historical Review, Oct. 2014), 'The Archives of Universal History' (Journal of World History, Sept. 2008), 'A Horrible Tragedy in the French Atlantic' (Past and Present, Aug. 2006), Economic Sentiments: Adam Smith, Condorcet and the Enlightenment (Harvard UP, 2001), and The Inner Life of Empires: An Eighteenth-Century History (Princeton UP, 2011).
