annual conference of the Program in Early American Economy and Society (PEAES), to be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on October 6-7, will commemorate the publication of Cathy Matson and Peter Onuf’s 1990 work, A Union of Interests: Political and Economic Thought in Revolutionary America. Taking Matson and Onuf’s book as the point of departure, the meeting "will analyze and evaluate the field of political economy a quarter century later and showcase exciting new directions in the study of early North American political economy." The program is now available on the conference website; participants include Brian Murphy, Gautham Rao, Jessica Lepler, and Sharon Ann Murphy. John Larson of Purdue University will deliver the opening keynote address.
