Sovereignty, Economy and the Global Histories of Natural Resources 18-19 December 2017
A two-day Centre supported international symposium on the global history of natural resources, to be held in Magdalene College, will aim to open a conversation between junior and senior scholars working on the economy, law and the environment. The workshop will ask how natural resources like carbon, aid and water became the subject of legal, economic and international politics in the 19th and 20th centuries. The event is coordinated by Centre associate Tehila Sasson (Emory University/IHR) in collaboration with the University of Basel, the University of Heidelberg and the University of Sydney. The three universities have provided the funding through the International Research Award in Global History with additional contribution from the journal Past & Present. Conference keynote speaker will be Jedediah Purdy, Professor of Law at Duke University. For further information, please contact Tehila Sasson.
