CfP: Southern Capitalisms Graduate Student Conference, Johns Hopkins

Recent years have witnessed renewed attention on the part of historians to questions concerning capital accumulation, market formation, and labor regimes. Bringing together scholars from a wide range of geographic, temporal, and thematic sub-fields, the new history of capitalism has revisited long-held assumptions about economic development and capital accumulation with an eye towards understanding the ways culture, politics, and markets have intersected to form the basis of a dynamic and highly complex capitalism(s).

We are very excited to announce a very special event put on by the Program on the Study of Capitalism. Thomas Piketty, author of the bestselling Capital in the Twenty-First Century, will be presenting to us as part of the Seminar on the Political Economy of Modern Capitalism in the Ames Courtroom of Austin Hall (just northwest of the Science Center) on FRIDAY, March 6 from 2-4 PM. Piketty's lecture will then be followed by commentary from Christine Desan (HLS), David Kennedy (HLS) and Stephen A. Marglin (Economics, Harvard). We hope you can join us!
