Areas of Expertise
Anthony Howe specialises in the history of nineteenth and early twentieth-century Britain. His books include Free Trade and Liberal England, 1846-1946 (Oxford, 1998) and, with Simon Morgan, he has edited Rethinking Nineteenth-Century Liberalism: Richard Cobden Bicentenary Essays (Ashgate, 2006). With the support of an AHRC resource enhancement grant, he recently edited four volumes the letters of the leading British radical Richard Cobden (1804-1865).
Professor Howe teaches second year courses on Victorian Britain and on National Identities in Britain and the British World, 1801-1951, third year options on Edwardian Britain and Liberalism in the Age of Cobden and Gladstone, and at master's level, Britain America, and the International Economic Order, 1846-1996. He is willing to supervise dissertations in most areas of nineteenth and twentieth-century British history as well as on the history of free trade and globalisation.
