Dr Ali Coşkun Tuncer


Coşkun Tuncer joined the department as Lecturer in Modern Economic History in September 2013. Previously he was a Fellow in Economic History at the London School of Economics, where he had been teaching since 2008. Between 2009 and 2013 he conducted research on long-term European market integration for the European University Institute, and worked in the financial sector as a historical researcher.

He received his PhD from the London School of Economics in 2011 after completing his BA, MSc and MPhil degrees in Turkey and Greece. His PhD thesis on creditors’ response to the sovereign debt crises and international financial supervision during the nineteenth century is due to be published in History of Finance Series of Palgrave Macmillan in 2015.

His research focuses on the economic and financial history of the late Ottoman Empire, long-term economic change in the Middle East and Southeast Europe, history of financial markets, and evolution of international financial and monetary institutions from the nineteenth century to the present. His other recent activities involve a new research project on the history of the Levant Company and Mediterranean trade from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries.

Coşkun teaches an advanced seminar course on economic history of the Middle East and the Balkans with specific emphasis on the Ottoman state and institutions and a thematic global financial history course covering the period from 1700 to 1970. He also contributes to the MA core courses in History, European History and Transnational History with lectures on political economy and transnational economic history.
Coşkun is the MA Tutor in History and European History and he also acts as department's Careers Tutor.
