CFP: “The United States and Global Capitalism in the Twentieth Century,” (Fordham University, March 8th to 10th, 2018).

For scholars of the US in the world, see this call for papers for a conference on the histories of US foreign relations and global capitalism in the twentieth century:

Intense exchanges of people, goods, ideas, and capital occurred in tandem with the rise of American global power in the twentieth century. These transformations had great consequences in the United States and the world and have led historians to ask probing questions: In what ways and to what extent did global capitalism transform American lives and policy at home and abroad? How did American businesses understand opportunities abroad and the role of the U.S. government in facilitating their investments and profits? How did key American industries help shape international policies and what were the limits to their power? How did imperialism, warfare, decolonization, the Cold War, and development paradigms transform American perceptions about the relationship between the global capitalist economy and foreign relations? What were the origins and political trajectories of capitalist ideology that influenced U.S. foreign relations? How did capitalism as a social system affect how different groups of American citizens understood their place in the world?
