Our conference invites graduate students to submit proposals that illuminate new work that draws together the history of capitalism and the US South in its Atlantic World and Global South contexts. The theme, Capitalist Souths, addresses the increasing difficulty to understand the development of capitalism in the US South without understanding its embeddedness in transnational and global flows of capital, labor, ideas, and people. The interdisciplinary aims of our conference exemplify the growing importance of diverse methodologies in the study of capitalism's developments and changes in the US and Global South. We welcome single paper and panel proposals concerning, but not limited to:

  • Transnational histories of the US, Latin America, Africa, and/or Asia
  • Development of capitalism in the US South
  • Labor and capital migrations
  • The "Nuevo South"
  • Contested citizenship
  • Hybrid global identities
  • Environmental and geological impacts of capitalism
