Om Dimitrios Theodoridis

The overarching aim of my doctoral research is to examine different aspects of trade, in people and resources, in the late 18th and 19th centuries, analyzing them from an ecological perspective. More specifically, the research focus is placed on the relative role of core and periphery in providing natural resources and people (slaves) through trade and identifying the ecological motives and consequences of these activities in respect with industrialization. In my two first research papers of the thesis I focus on Britain during the industrial revolution, analyzing the ecological footprint of its trade with the rest of the world. A third paper focuses on the slave trade from Africa and specifically examines the ecological roots of slave trade in Senegambia. In a fourth paper I employ a theoretical approach examining the strength of the Heckscher–Ohlin theory in explaining the Balric trade.


Overall, my research departs from theoretical approaches which explicitly focus on the role of nature and natural resources for economic growth and the importance of trade, as a mediating factor, in the overall process. It partly aims at questioning certain positions in known debates on the relative importance of the “periphery” for 19th century European growth focusing in the case of Britain. But at the same time the study intends to provide a new point of view on the role of the environment and natural capital endowments in key historical trade processes.
