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.
