Call for Papers- Toward a Global History of Economic Transfer: Commodities, Commodity Chains, and Processes of Economic Innovation

February 4, 2020

The Weatherhead Initiative for Global History and the History Department of the East China Normal University, and other members of the Global History Network, will examine this multidimensional process of transformation –from the vantage of the history of material commodities and technological transfer broadly construed – at a conference at the ECNU in Shanghai in October 2020. We welcome proposals for papers that will address the question of how the extraction of resources, cultivation and marketing of commodities, and the changing organization of production and finance have driven economic and social transformation across the modern world, including the dismantling of established hierarchies of power and traditional identities.
