Research Subject

About Patrik Winton

I am a senior lecturer in history with a particular interest in global history, state formation, political economy and financial development in Europe during the early modern period. My research has primarily focused on politics and on how the ties between the Scandinavian states and the growing credit markets affected society during the eighteenth- and early nineteenth century. The research has been funded by Handelsbanken's research foundations, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and the Swedish Research Council. I finished my doctoral thesis at Uppsala University in 2006. The thesis focused on political organization in Sweden during the Age of Liberty (1719-1772). Since then I have, among other things, edited the anthology Scandinavia in the Age of Revolution: Nordic Political Cultures, 1740-1820 (Ashgate 2011) together with Michael Bregnsbo, Pasi Ihalainen and Karin Sennefelt, and published a number of articles, such as " War, Resources and Morality: Sweden 1740-1770" in the anthology The War Within: Private Interests and the Fiscal State in Early-Modern Europe (edited by Joël Félix and Anne Dubet and published by Palgrave Macmillan 2018), "The Globalizing Swedish State: Loans, Exchange Rates and International Merchant Networks Around 1770", in Scandia (2017), and "The Political Economy of Strategic Default: Sweden and the International Capital Markets, 1810-1830" in European Review of Economic History (2016). In Örebro I teach the chronological history courses and the essay courses.
