Luis Bosshart

I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Government at the London School of Economics.

My research focuses on political economy and uses quantitative methods to study the past.

In recent work with Jeremiah Dittmar, we document how the Black Death was a critical juncture and led to the divergence of Eastern and Western Europe.

In other work, I focus on postwar Germany and study: how denazification shaped the emerging political landscape; the role of TV in coming to terms with the Nazi past; and the political legacies of forced relocation.
