Dr Christopher Miller holds the post of Lecturer in Global Economy in the Economic and Social History department, University of Glasgow. Chris joined CBHS on 1st July 2016. Chris holds degrees from the University of Oxford (Balliol College) and the University of Glasgow, and completed his PhD here in January 2015 on the Political Economy of Naval Armaments Manufacture, jointly between the Centre for Business History and the Scottish Centre for War Studies. Prior to returning to Glasgow, Christopher held a pre-doctoral fellowship in International Security Studies at Yale University, and most recently was lecturer in modern history at the University of Tuebingen, Germany.
Christopher's research has thus far mainly been on the topic of State-Industry relations, particularly around areas of crisis for one or both sides, and blends together aspects of business, military and political history. These have so far included armaments manufacture during disarmament and rearmament, and on topics of pollution and environmental disasters between 1870 and 1950. He has previous and forthcoming publications in business and labour history journals. His first book, "Planning and Profits. British Naval Armaments Manufacture and the Military-Industrial Complex, 1918-1941", Series: Research in Maritime History, (53), was published in April 2018, Liverpool University Press.
