APPEAL’s What Is Capitalism? Reading Group

Dec 18, 2020

The next iteration of APPEAL’s ‘What is Capitalism?’ reading group is meeting December 18 at 3pm ET. All are welcome, and participants need not attend each session, though they do ask participants to read the materials in advance.  They also encourage participants to join APPEAL by signing up as a member, . 

Professor Jamee Moudud, Sarah Lawrence College Economics, will lead a discussion of two short readings on W.E.B. Dubois’s important contributions to institutional economics and political economy. We hope to build on these readings in further sessions exploring questions of law and racial capitalism. The readings will be sent via email to those who register: 

Robert Prasch, W.E.B. Dubois’s Contributions to U.S. EconomicsDu Bois Review, 5:2 (2008) 309–324.

Barrington S. Edwards, W.E.B. Dubois Between Worlds:  Berlin, Empirical Social Research, and the Race QuestionDu Bois Review, 3:2 (2006) 395–424.
