Seminar on the State and Capitalism Since 1800


The Seminar on the State and Capitalism Since 1800 serves as a forum for discussion of research in progress and forthcoming papers on issues in comparative political economy, institutional change, and issues in historical institutionalism. It brings together faculty, visiting scholars, and graduate students from Harvard, MIT, and other colleges in the Boston area. This seminar especially welcomes regular participants who plan on attending most sessions during the semester. In lieu of a formal presentation, attendees are expected to read a paper in advance of each seminar and participate in a discussion. Relevant papers are shared at least a week in advance of each seminar.


** Please note: Events in this seminar series do not include a presentation. Attendees of this seminar are expected to read a paper in advance and enter into a discussion. To receive a copy of the paper and the Zoom link, please contact Laura Falloon, CES Program Coordinator.**
