CFP: “Histories of Capitalism v.2.0”

Cornell's History of Capitalism Initiative is sponsoring a second conference on the "Histories of Capitalism" on September 29-October 1, 2016. Whereas the first meeting focused on American capitalism, the organizers hope that this event will include several panels and papers that incorporate non-U.S., regional, transnational, or global histories. The call for papers states:
Building on the success of that conference and on developments in this rapidly growing field, we invite proposals for panels that continue to illustrate the diversity of the histories of capitalism(s) through a variety of perspectives, including intellectual, legal, gender, environmental history, as well as the history of science and technology.
    Plenary Speakers include Jedidiah Purdy (Duke); Marcus Rediker (Pittsburgh); Emma Rothschild (Harvard University); and Juliet Walker (University of Texas-Austin).
    Papers and panels may be submitted by scholars at any stage of their careers; the deadline is March 1, 2016. Please see the conference homepage for submission instructions and a fuller description of possible topics.
