Dr Milan Pajic

Junior Research Fellow
My current research is a multi-faceted study of the migration of artisans between England and Continental Europe in the late middle ages. I focus on the fundamental historical questions surrounding the social, economic, cultural and political motivations for, and impacts of, migration – questions which remain crucial for contemporary societies.
Violet and Ian Campbell Research Fellow; Warden of the Russell Street Hostel

I hold a BA in Applied Languages from University of Franche-Comté and an MA in Intercultural Studies from University of Strasbourg.  My recently completed PhD at the Universities of Ghent (History) and Strasbourg (English Studies), dealing with the migration of Flemish textile workers to England in the fourteenth century and their economic influence, has been turned into a monograph and is forthcoming with Cambridge University Press.
