*Call for Papers*:
The History of Capitalism in North America,
Graduate Student Conference at Harvard, October 27-28, 2006

Keynote speaker:  Richard White (Stanford University)

This conference aims to bring together emerging scholars who see
capitalism as an important category of analysis and a topic for
historical inquiry in its own right.  We seek papers from fellow
graduate students whose work broadens our knowledge of the history
of American capitalism and uses capitalism as a prism through which
to understand American history as a whole.

We welcome papers that focus on a variety of topics, not just those
usually associated with economic history.  We are looking for
submissions on subjects related (but not limited) to:

.          Legal structures and the state
         The built and the natural environments
         Work and labor
         Race and slavery
         Migration and immigration
         Ideas and culture
         Gender
         Class formation
         Consumerism
         Agriculture
         Trans- and multinational corporations
         Industries and commodities
         Imperialism and colonialism
         Innovation and technology
         Business strategies

Interested graduate students should submit a C.V. and a 750-word
abstract of their paper (description, significance, sources, current
status) to:
