More about Julia

Julia Moses works on the history of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Britain and Europe. Her research focuses on questions of social welfare and its regulation. She has researched understandings of ‘risk’, workplace accidents and associated psychological trauma. Her forthcoming monograph explores these issues from comparative and transnational perspectives for Britain, Germany and Italy.

As part of an international network, she has also investigated the history of silicosis, a fatal occupational illness that remains widespread across the globe. Her current work on marriage and the family in Imperial Germany (AHRC grant AH/J00751X/1) explores questions of individual well being and population health, including associated issues of ‘racial hygiene’.

She is also co-chair of the welfare state network at the Council for European Studies.
