Interpreting American History

A GRADUATE WORKSHOP AND LECTURE SERIES AT RUTGERS 2012-2013

The Public and Private Lives of Capitalism


Join us for the third annual Interpreting American History Lecture Series at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. This series probes a wide range of issues concerning capitalism in the history of the United States.


This coming academic year, we will host four visiting scholars who will share their keen insights and innovative work concerning capitalism and the history of the United States. Scholars will give public lectures and lead small graduate workshops. The graduate luncheon workshops work to bring together an interdisciplinary group of graduate students to engage each other on methodologies, theories, and source materials. The luncheons will be held at 1:00 PM. The wider Rutgers community is invited to the afternoon public lectures, which allow the visiting scholars to speak on their own research as connected to the annual theme.
