CHR Capitalism Reading Group

Welcome! We meet once a month to discuss a time-honored or recent work on capitalism. Our interests range from political economy, history and theory, micro-foundations, money, commodity, and modernity to colonial, cultural, environmental, and racial capitalism. Our geographical attractions vary from the Plantation South and the Caribbean to East Africa. We want to read some exciting works and have an engaged discussion.   If you would like more information about the group, please contact one of the co-coordinators, Prof. Manjusha Nair ( or Deepika Hooda ( Our first meeting is on January 22, 2021, at 12 pm, and we discuss Debt: The first 5000 years by David Graeber.
