“Foreign Confidence: International Investment in North America, 1700 to 1860”
The twelfth annual conference of the Program in Early American Economy and Society of the Library Company of Philadelphia, co-sponsored with The Rothschild Archive, London, will be held Thursday and Friday, October 11-12, 2012. The keynote address on Thursday by Emma Rothschild of Harvard University, followed by a number of papers on Friday by established scholars, together will explore how foreign networks of individuals and institutions provided funds, credit, and knowledge to North Americans during a heady period of transnational investment and development. Papers will also reflect on the rich resources abroad for doing future research on these themes. For information about the goals of this conference, speakers, and accommodations, please visit the PEAES website at www.librarycompany.org/economics. The conference program is available. There is no registration fee, but in order to receive the pre-circulated papers, which will be posted in the early days of September, please fill out the registration page at the website. We look forward to seeing you this Fall. Cathy Matson, PEAES Director, at email@example.com.
