Dr. Marie Christine Duggan earned her B.A. in international relations from Tufts University and her M.A. and Ph.D. in economics from the New School for Social Research. She is currently teaching introductory macroeconomics, econometrics, the history of industry in Keene, and a course comparing property rights between the Spanish Borderlands, the Slave South and New England. Her own early days were spent in California, although she has lived on the East Coast for thirty years, with stints in Germany and Mexico. She is writing a book on the economics of Spanish imperialism in 18th century California. In the classroom, she works with students to compile data on the history of Keene industry 1850 to 2015. In her spare time, she sorts out the economic thought of Campomanes, who was advisor to Carlos III of Spain at the time when California was colonized--the 1760s, which also witnessed the birth of economics. In all of these projects, she explores how man-made institutions interact with market forces to channel human desires into social outcomes. Her articles have appeared in Pacific Historical Review, History of Political Economy (HOPE) and the Review of Radical Political Economics. Dr. Duggan is the mother of two children and lives in Keene, New Hampshire.
