Research interests focus on world historical change. He is particularly concerned with the historical sociology of Latin America and the Caribbean as part of the historical formation of the modern world economy. His current research is a comparative study of slavery in Brazil, Cuba, and the United States during the nineteenth century. It seeks to understand the ways that systems of slavery and forced labor expanded and were transformed in response to the industrialization of the world economy. Recent books include: Through the Prism of Slavery: Exploration in Labor, Markets, and World Economy. Professor Tomich offers courses on historical sociology, global inequalities, and social theory.

With a group of international scholars he is engaged in a collaborative interdisciplinary research project on the relation of function and representation in the making of plantation spaces in Brazil Cuba and the Lower Mississippi Valley.
