CFP: “Historicizing 'The Economy'”

"Historicizing 'The Economy' " is a two-day workshop to be held at Harvard University on September 23-24, 2016. According to the organizers, the "workshop aims to bring together scholars working on the emergence and the history of different conceptions of the 'economic' and the 'economy' as objects of economic thought and political practice."
     The workshop is being organized by Daniel Hirschman (University of Michigan/Brown University), Adam Leeds (Harvard University/Columbia University), and Onur Özgöde (Harvard University). Potential participants should submit an abstract (500-word max.) via email to all three organizers by May 1, 2016.
     The project is supported by the New Horizons Initiative of the History of Economics Society and the Harvard Institute for Global Law and Policy. Limited funding will be available to offset travel and lodging costs; space for non-participant attendees will be limited.
