The study of Capitalism has seen a resurgence in academia. New ways of looking at old questions have challenged the established narratives between capital and social relationships. The University of Georgia's History Department has been a pioneer in exploring capitalism as a category of historical analysis.
The Global Capitalism Initiative was a resounding success! We had multiple events that encouraged interactions between the University of Georgia and the community, including CAPFEST: Productive Forces, our Workshop Series, and the Global Capitalism and Global South Graduate Student Conference. Each one of these events provided a way for students, faculty, alumni, and the public to engage with, and discuss, the History of Capitalism in different forums. We also added several new members to our community!
