Work and Wellbeing in History

The Work and Wellbeing in History project provides tools to measure the quality of occupations in the past, and uses history and social science to inform present-day debates about good jobs. Work is fundamental to quality of life, and our team is using quantitative and qualitative methods to understand the dimensions of good work in the past.

The project is supported by the Centre for Advanced Study (CAS) at the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.

Latest news: The program for our June 2023 conference is now available here.
