Research[edit]

Hudson is an economic historian of the British Industrial Revolution, whose research has focused on the wider economic, social and cultural aspects of industrialisation, beyond the role of individual entrepreneurs and inventions. She has also researched the textile industry, especially wool textiles, proto-industrialisation, regional and local history. Some of her work has also stressed the appropriate use of economic theory for historians and quantitative research methods.[1][2]
