Research overview

Largely focusing on the seventeenth century, but stretching from 1500 to the present, my research concerns are with the nature of community, its formation and incorporation within or exclusion from community; with the nature of historical knowledge, and the role of the historian. This has been applied to the fields of British and Irish, Scandinavian, Dutch and Spanish European communities; those of the Eastern seaboard of the Americas; and to the exploration of non-traditional source materials to recover historical knowledge.

PhD supervision

Dr Barber is keen to hear from students interested inworking on topics that would fall under the following headings:

The British Isles, especially England and Ireland, in the seventeenth century. Seventeenth-Century English Radicalism and Republicanism. Ethnic Minorities in Early-Modern Europe. The Caribbean in the seventeenth Century.
