Dr Christopher Miller

  • Lecturer in Global Economy (Economic & Social History)

Biography

I am a historian of business-government relations in the twentieth century, particularly interested in wars, crises and technology in Western Europe and America. I have mostly been working on the political economy of armaments manufacturing and related topics, though these interests are (slowly) broadening into other areas - such as pollution and the environment - in recent months and years. 

I was educated at the University of Oxford (Balliol College), and the University of Glasgow. I (re)joined Glasgow in 2016 after a predoctoral fellowship at Yale University, and a lectureship at the University of Tuebingen in Germany. Since 2018 I have been a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society.
