Linda Randall Meier Research Workshop

Approaches to Capitalism

The workshop brings together participants to explore the phenomenon of capitalism, from foundational texts to new methodological approaches. Well before the current global economic crisis, historians and anthropologists explored the “market” or “capital” as agents of social, cultural, and economic change.  In this workshop researchers and advanced students from multiple disciplines come together to test whether capitalism can serve as a lens to understand history and anthropology.
