How are land, seas, habitats, and human bodies incorporated into global market society? This question animated more than forty researchers to come together at the “Towards a Global History of Primitive Accumulation” conference. This conference at the International Institute of Social History (IISH) in Amsterdam, from 9 to 11 May, 2019, was co-sponsored by the IISH, the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Houston. The organizing committee consisted of Pepijn Brandon, Nyklas Frykman, Wendy Goldman, Marcus Rediker and Marcel van der Linden.
