Economic History is an established discipline at IBF. In recent years, research has foremost been undertaken in relation to early modern dwelling and working conditions. Presently, there is an ambition to widen this profile, and also study Swedish urbanization from the early twentieth century until the present times. The ambition is to link this theme to research done at the Urban Lab, a multidisciplinary initiative created at IBF together with the department of Economics and Uppsala municipality, on questions about towns, cities and the process of urbanization.
