I am soliciting paper proposals for a panel on U.S. capitalism for this year’s U.S. intellectual history conference, to be held in New York City on November 12 and 13.
For the panel, I am interested in any aspect of the intellectual history of capitalism in the United States, in the broad spirit, perhaps, of the 2006 anthology American Capitalism, edited by Nelson Lichtenstein. Though I hope to be able to focus the panel a bit more after receiving submissions, for now I am interested in anything that might broadly relate to the category, in any time period: biographical portraits, textual analyses, social criticism, business histories, etc. My own paper will be an analysis of Henry Wallace’s New Deal-era concept of “progressive capitalism” and its relationship with the goal of full employment.
Anyone interested in participating should send to me ([email protected]) by May 1 a one-page paper proposal and a one-page CV, both in MS Word format. Anyone who would be interested in moderating the panel should also send a one-page CV, again by May 1.
Thanks very much.
