Opuscula Historica Upsaliensia


At the Department of History at Uppsala University there are about fifty historians with different interests and in various research areas. There are historians who research on child labor in 1900s South Africa, with land conflicts in 1800s India, with food supplies in connection with the 1600-century wars, with the kings way to communicate with his subjects, and with the treatment of Jews during World War II. The research deals with events over a long time, from the early Middle Ages to the 1900s. Particularly good skills we have, for the period 1600 to 1900.
