With support from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the Johns Hopkins University has launched a new Seminar on the History of American Capitalism. The Seminar meets between six and ten times each year to discuss emerging research in the field. The gatherings aim to create an interdisciplinary environment for scholars across a range of historical subfields to share and discuss new work on the economic, cultural, and intellectual history of a market society, its political context, and the role of entrepreneurship in the American past and present. Many of the visitors contribute to our ongoing working paper series, and the program will host a conference during the 2016–2017 academic year. If you have questions about the program, please contact Angus Burgin, Christy Chapin, or Louis Galambos.
