Medieval & Early Modern England; social and economic history; legal history.
Peter Larson's research focuses on the social and legal history of premodern England, and the relation of local/regional to national historyl. His book Conflict and Compromise in the Late Medieval Countryside: Lords and Peasants in Durham, 1348 to 1400 is a study of the reactions of lords and peasants in County Durham as they struggled to put their lives and society back together in the half-century following the Black Death. His current project investigates the so-called "transition from feudalism to capitalism" by examining agricultural expansion in northeast England as a necessary precursor to the industrial revolution. His other interests include English law; the intersection of social status, geography, and wealth; and ideas of freedom and subjection from the classical period to the present.
