Story posted September 09, 2013

A one-and-a-half day symposium at Bowdoin College:
Saturday and Sunday, October 19-20, 2013

This symposium is a forum for reexamination of American political economy from the Age of Jackson to the Civil War during the war's sesquicentennial.  It brings together historians of economics, scholars of American political development, and historians of antebellum America and the Civil-War era to debate the originality and continuing relevance of a neglected set of American economic thinkers.


All panels, which are free and open to the public, will be held in the Shannon Room, Hubbard Hall, on Saturday and Sunday, October 19-20, 2013.    For more information, please see the symposium website »
