Esser (1962) studied History and German at the University of Cologne, where she gained a PhD in Medieval and Modern History in 1994. Esser has worked as a university lecturer in Cologne, London, Potsdam and Bristol. At the University of the West of England in Bristol she was Associate Head of the Faculty’s Graduate School and Head of the History Department.. Esser regularly presents work at international conferences and has extensive teaching and management experience.
Esser’s interests lie in the field of research on international migration patterns in the early modern period and the subsequent process of integration and cultural exchange. Her research on Dutch emigrants to England (social history) and more recently on identity formation in urban and regional history (cultural history) is innovative and top quality. Her latest book on the regional and urban history and historiography of the Low Countries in the seventeenth century is currently in print with Brill.
