Preliminary Program: History of Capitalism 2.0 at Cornell

The second conference on "Histories of Capitalism," v. 2.0, organized under the auspices of the History of Capitalism Initiative, will take place on  September 29-October 1, 2016, at the ILR School's Conference Center. Whereas the first meeting focused specifically on American capitalism, the second encourages "panels and papers that incorporate non-U.S., regional, transnational, or global histories." Plenary speakers include Juliet Walker, Marcus Rediker, Emma Rothschild, and Jedidiah Purdy.
    Registration is now open, and a preliminary version of the program has been released. For more details, please see the conference website.
