"Teaching the History of Capitalism"


In November 2011, the Program on the Study of Capitalism at Harvard University, chaired by Sven Beckert and Christine Desan, hosted a conference on "Teaching the History of Capitalism." A group of scholars in the field convened at the university to reflect on how the history of capitalism might enhance the college curriculum. Conference co-organizers Sven Beckert and Noam Maggor have now posted a report on the conference, as well as links to a number of syllabi collected in response to the meeting.


Tip of the hat to the Culture of the Market Network.
