The 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 above, but we are open to panels in other subfields as well. Our invitation is open to scholars at any stage of their careers. Please include a 500 word description and c.v. for each paper proposal.
