Working papers

The Ferguson Working Paper series presents papers in a preliminary form and serves to stimulate comment and discussion. The views expressed are entirely the author’s own and not that of the Centre or of the Open University.

Please email marie-claire.leroux@open.ac.uk to contact the Editor of Ferguson Centre Working Papers.

We would also be happy to talk to you about cross-linking sites with any centre that hosts working papers in closely related areas.

These papers fall into two categories, those of the centre's Commodities of Empire series, and general papers.
