Annual Conference: Histories of American Capitalism

The inaugural Cornell Conference on the Histories of American Capitalism invites panels and individual papers that seek to make connections between the diverse historiographic subfields of the last several decades and the recent interest in the history of capitalism.

In short, we seek a path forward from the "cultural turn" while honoring its complexity. Our starting clusters are listed in the sidebar, but we are open to panels in other subfields as well.
