Dr Helen Paul is a lecturer in Economics and Economic History and is particularly interested in early modern economic history: the Financial Revolution; Atlantic history; the South Sea Bubble, and the Navy’s role within the economy.
I am an economic historian and studied at Oxford and St Andrews. My PhD thesis concerned the South Sea Company and the financial bubble of 1720. My doctoral studies were funded by the ESRC and I then gained an ESRC research fellowship as a postdoc. My primary interest is in the early modern period from the late 17th to early 18th centuries. My research concerns the Financial Revolution; early joint-stock companies; the Triangular Trade including the slave trade, and Atlantic history.
