October 2014 PEAES Program Now Available

On October 24-25, 2014, the Program in Early American Economy and Society (PEAES) will hold a conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, commemorating the program's fifteenth anniversary. The theme of the meeting is "Economic History's Many Muses." As PEAES director Cathy Matson writes, "This conference looks back over those fifteen years to reflect on a few of the central themes preoccupying economic historians during recent decades, how approaches and findings have changed, what achievements have been made, and how we can think about our future research in these vital subfields." The program and other conference details are now available on the PEAES website. Among the presenters are BHC trustees Caitlin Rosenthal, Stephen Mihm, and Ellen Hartigan-O'Connor.
    This conference is free and open to anyone interested in the topic, but preregistration is required.
