New Perspectives on the History of Political Economy

November 1-2, 2013


The goal of the conference was to re-conceptualize, through a variety of historical approaches, the origins and history of theories of political economy. The meeting brought together international thought leaders in the field of political economy with up-and-coming young scholars. Work is in progress on producing a pioneering volume of proceedings from the conference, edited by Robert Fredona and Sophus A. Reinert, which will take stock of current work on the history of political economy and set the agenda for future research in this growing and increasingly important field of study.
