The next annual conference of the Program in Early American Economy and Society will be held on October 10-11, 2007 at the Library Company of Philadelphia. Entitled “The Panic of 1837: Getting By and Going Under in a Decade of Crisis,” this conference’s presenters will examine how the circumstances of this critical moment had important consequences for the ways Americans thought about their economic culture, responded to personal and social crises, and debated the proper connections between households, politics, and the economy. Speakers and commenters include Scott Sandage, Jess Lepler, Sharon Murphy, Sean Adams, Dan Wadwani, Josh Greenberg, Mary Templin, Ken Cohen, John Larson, Richard John, Dallett Hemphill, Seth Rockman, and others. This conference will be free and open to everyone interested in its themes. Further information about registration and accommodations will be available during the new year at www.librarycompany.org/economics.
