This event co-presented with the Harvard Business History Seminar, and organized by Geoffrey Jones, Isidor Straus Professor of Business History, and Faculty Chair of the Business History Initiative, Harvard Business School; and Sophus Reinert, Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School.

This graduate-faculty research seminar is designed to bring together interested faculty and students on a continuing basis to cover topics on global history. It is part of History 2950A/B, History of Global Capitalism, and includes both reading sessions designed for graduate students and research sessions open to the interested public during which students and faculty participants will present current research. Faculty participants will be drawn from a number of schools, and, most especially, from the group of fellows in global history who are spending the academic year 2019-2020 at the Weatherhead Initiative on Global History. Discussions will be moderated by Professors Sven Beckert and Sophus Reinert.

Papers will be pre-circulated and are available by request to one week ahead of time.
