Sarah Dietz

University of Bradford

    Completed her Ph.D. at the University of Bradford in 2013. A former textile designer, she explores in her thesis the nineteenth-century foreign direct investment of a British textile manufacturing firm near Warsaw. The study encompasses international trust-based dealing, technology transfer, and the impact of protectionism and political instability on business behavior. Currently preparing the research for publication under the title "British Entre-preneurship in Russian Poland, 1883-1945: A Case Study of Bradford Mills at Marki," Sarah will deliver a paper at the BHC conference that explores the role of the British consul in facilitating British-foreign direct investment in the nineteenth century.
