Global Histories of Capital: New Perspectives on the Global South


WHEN October 6-7, 2017
9 AM - 6:45 PM EST WHERE 19 Washington Square North WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

This conference aims to bring together graduate students and early career scholars focusing on areas of the non-west, whose work approaches questions of the economic from political, social, environmental, intellectual, and cultural perspectives. In light of growing interest in the status of the economic to social scientific inquiry—spurred by research programs on the history of capitalism to new materialism—the conference objective is to foster a critical conversation about how individuals write such histories from world-regions outside Western Europe and North America. By bringing together scholars of varied regional expertise, the conference aims to more precisely reframe the relevance of categories such as the ‘global south’ and ‘non-west’ within their specific relationship to historical processes of globalization and imperialism.
