Alexander Kemp

MA Candidate
Political and economic history



Bachelor of Arts, Joint Honours in History and Political Science


I am interested in twentieth century political and economic history and the history of capitalism. Under the supervision of Dr. Jeff Brison, I plan to study postwar Canadian energy policy and the tensions between economic nationalism and international trade and institutional commitments. I am also interested in combining the deeper, longitudinal analysis typical of history with research questions found in economic sociology and political economy.
