Biography Judith Spicksley began her research career in early modern English economic and social history, where she focused on the credit activities of never-married women. She moved to concentrate on the history of slavery in 2007, looking at the history of enslavement for debt.

From 2010-17 she taught the economic history of Britain and Europe at the University of York before returning to the University of Hull to take up a position in the Wilberforce Institute. She is a fellow of the Royal Historical Society and a member of the Economic History Society.

Judith's current focus of research is a reevaluation of the institution of slavery in the long run.
