Alternative approaches in economics

The department has several researchers whose principal (or subsidiary) research interests lie outside the mainstream, narrowly defined. In economic history, they study the development of US industry, German economic history before and after 1945, and twentieth-century globalization. In the history of economic thought, their research focuses on Austrian economics, Marxian political economy and Post Keynesian macroeconomics. In heterodox economics, their interests include the Austrian, Marxian and Post Keynesian schools and the case for pluralism in economics, especially in undergraduate teaching.

Potential PhD topics

The School will consider any research topic that interests potential PhD students; however, students will benefit from researching in areas that align with the School's strengths.  Please contact the School to discuss your PhD topic.
