The Global Capitalism Initiative is finally up and running! We will be bringing you several exciting events this spring, including a film series, several workshops with scholars from around the country, and a Graduate Student Conference on Global Capitalism and the Global South. Please check back often, as we will be updating this site regularly with the most current information for each event.
The Global Capitalism Initative will be workshopping a paper by Dr. Sarah Milov from the Corcoran Department of History at the University of Virginia, titled "Tobacco Leaf as Fig Leaf: The Tobacco Growers' Information Committee" on Thursday, March 26th at 12:30 in rm 320 of LeConte Hall. The paper will be precirculated and lunch will be provided. If you would like to participate in the workshop, please email a request for the paper to firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see many of you there!
The study of Capitalism has seen resurgence in academia. New ways of looking at old questions have challenged the established narrative between capital and social relationships. The University of Georgia Graduate Student Conference on Global Capitalism and the Global South will enable graduate students to explore Capitalism as a category of historical analysis. The conference is scheduled for May 15th & 16th in the Zell B. Miller Learning Center and is open to the public. Please visit our website,The Global South and Global Capitalism Graduate Student Conference, for more information on the opening reception, panels, presenters, and commentators.
We will be holding our opening reception for the Global Capitalism and Global South Graduate Student Conference in the North Tower of the MLC on May 14th at 6pm. A.D. Carson, a PhD student in RCID at Clemson University, will perform his spoken word poem See The Stripes. Weaver D's will cater the reception dinner. If you would like to attend the opening reception, please send a request to email@example.com for an invitation.
The Global Capitalism Initiative would like to thank the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts for their generous funding of these activities and events.
