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: History of Capitalism Conference Charles Warren Center 4th Floor Emerson Hall Cambridge, MA 02138 The submission deadline is April 15, 2006.
