New Journal from Penn Press: Capitalism and History

The University of Pennsylvania Press has announced the founding of a new journal of interest. Titled Capitalism and History, the journal will publish its first issue in Winter 2019. The editors are Francesco Boldizzoni, University of Helsinki; Marc Flandreau, University of Pennsylvania; and Carl Wennerlind, Barnard College of Columbia University. The editor for review essays is Carolyn N. Biltoft, The Graduate Institute, Geneva. Editorial board members are listed here.
    According to the announcement, Capitalism and History
is concerned with both theory and empirics, welcomes qualitative and quantitative investigations, and encourages conceptual as well as methodological innovations. Capitalism and History is global in reach, diverse in outlook, and comprehensive in coverage, spanning a wide range of periods and world regions. It aims to achieve innovation by challenging the conventional boundaries between historical fields and putting history in conversation with economics, law, social theory, and the humanities at large.
