This workshop will introduce A-level students to economics-based approaches to studying history and show how quantitative historical data and economic theory can shed light on existing historical debates. The aim of this event is to get students to look at history from beyond specific times or places: to look at the economic forces that have shaped our world in the past and that will continue to shape our world in the future. Over the course of the day, students will be introduced to the field of economic history and the tools of the economic historian. Students will be given an introduction to historical data through the use of graphs, charts and tables and will be encouraged to get to grips with historical data through interactive games and activities. Students will also be introduced to the research carried out by staff at the Queen’s University Centre for Economic History (QUCEH).
