The Low Countries Journal of Social and Economic History (TSEG in Dutch) is the Dutch-Flemish journal of social and economic history. It is a peer-reviewed journal which was granted A status/ INT 1 by the European Science Foundation. The journal issues four numbers per year.
The journal focuses on social and economic history in the broad sense, with a strong interest in the manner in which people in the past have related to each other and given shape to social, economic, cultural and political patterns. Key notions here are economic growth, power & (in)equality, group cultures, networks, identity, gender, ethnicity, ecology, trade & technique, entrepreneurship, labour & social movements. The editorial board regards insights and theories from the social sciences as a source of inspiration.
TSEG was founded in 2004 as a merger and continuation of three Dutch journals of economic and social history: NEHA-Jaarboek voor economische, bedrijfs- en techniekgeschiedenis (1914), the Tijdschrift voor Sociale Geschiedenis (1975) and the NEHA-Bulletin (1986). TSEG is published under the auspices of the International Institute of Social History (IISH) and the Netherlands Economic-Historical Archive (NEHA).
