History of Capitalism at the University of Georgia
 
Welcome
Saturday, February 18: Capitalism in America: A New History

Although studies of capitalism reach back to Adam Smith and Karl Marx, faculty and graduate students in the University of Georgia's Department of History are working on cutting-edge efforts to unite labor history, world-systems theory, the history of slavery, cultural and intellectual history, environmental history, immigration history, economic history, and business and technological history into a single field of analysis, with a global perspective. Such topics as migration and immigration, proletarianization, commodity chains and flows, political and cultural imperialism, social resistance to the spread of global capitalism, and the impact of capitalism on the experiences of families and the lives of women are key issues for historians at the University of Georgia and elsewhere, but they are rarely put together into a coherent package.
