Lexicon of Commodity Frontiers

16 June 2021 16:00 - 16 June 2021 18:00

The first CF Key Concept Conversation about “commodity frontier” will take place on Wednesday 16th of June, from 4 to 6 p.m. (CEST), with the overture of Jason W. Moore, and Mindi Schneider, Ulbe Bosma, Eric Vanhaute and Sven Beckert as speakers.

If you want to attend, please send a mail to Jacqueline Rutte from the International Institute of Social History, via secretar@iisg.nl.
After registration you will be sent the introductory text of Jason W. Moore and the Zoom link. Only a limited number of places is available.

This first session will be a special one, not only because we will discuss our most basic key concept, but also because Jason Moore who coined the concept in social sciences two decades ago agreed to offer a critical and thought-provoking analysis of the use of the concept today. Not to be missed!
