Preferred Black and White

This is the professional page of Dr. Jeremy Land. I received my Ph.D. at Georgia State University in the Department of History in 2019. I am most interested in economic history of the Atlantic World between roughly 1700-1850. I wish this to be an informative and thought provoking site that links to important pages and conferences that continue to expand the field of economic and/or business history. I am fully devoted to the improvement of the human condition, always considering the costs (both economic and social) associated with political decisions throughout the world.

In January 2021, I joined the University of Helsinki as a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Economic and Social History research group at the University of Helsinki. I am part of a Finnish Academy funded project on the fiscal capacities of Nordic states from the early modern period (16th century) to the modern day. Under the project leader Dr. Jari Eloranta, the project seeks to redefine the concept of fiscal capacity and understand better the transition from warfare-focused to welfare-focused states in the Baltic region.
