EIHS Workshop: Economies Between the Global and the Local: Politics, Culture, Materiality

Friday, November 17, 2017
12:00-4:00 PM
1014 Tisch Hall Map
This workshop asks how global economies resonate in, and are shaped by, local situations and settings from the nineteenth century to the present. Across two panels, papers investigate this theme through explorations of visual and political economies, economies of knowledge, information, global finance, and the dynamics of power. How does the category of “economies” help us think about a range of phenomena, both with and beyond the economic, narrowly defined? What kinds of connections do various types of economies reveal about systems of exchange and circulation across a range of sites and scales?
