Seminar on the State and Capitalism since 1800


A forum for discussion of research in progress and forthcoming papers on issues in comparative political economy, institutional change and issues in historical institutionalism, this seminar brings together faculty, visiting scholars and graduate students from Harvard, MIT and area colleges. The 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 posted at least a week in advance of each seminar.
