Social Science History Research

Researchers in social science history employ traditional social science concepts and methods to the study of societies of the past. They use quantitative as well as qualitative evidence to examine economic, social, political, and demographic behavior in historical contexts. This shared methodology fosters a culture of comparative research among members whose areas of expertise range from medieval and early modern Europe to modern Russia and the United States.
