The History of Political Economy

A three-week college and university institute for twenty-five participants on the history of economic thought.

The proposal seeks funding for a three week summer institute to be held at Duke University in May-June 2016. The institute will explore various episodes in the development of the history of economic thought. It will build on the successes of earlier institutes held in 2010 and 2013, while attempting to improve in those areas in which we received criticism. The intended audience is faculty in economics and the humanities who desire to explore economic knowledge in a historically informed fashion in their teaching but do not have the background to do so. Revealing the roots of economic knowledge in humanistic understandings of social life has been a central theme for historians of economics. The host for the summer institute, the Center for the History of Political Economy, was established in fall 2008 with a mission of promoting and supporting research in, and the teaching of, the history of political economy.
