Biography

Professor of Early Modern History

Regina Grafe (PhD LSE 2001) specialises in global economic and social history. Her fields of interest include the political economy of state and empire formation as well as the role of economic institutions in the Spanish Empire either side of the Atlantic. Her project "How pan-European cooperation beat competition in the Atlantic" challenges national narratives that portrayed the early modern European push for extra-European colonial hegemony as a result of intra-European competition. A second project "Colonial legacies, invisible institutions, and financial markets in Latin America (and beyond)" looks at the development of the sui generis financial sector in the Iberian colonies before 1800.
