The Vrije Universiteit Summer School "Amsterdam in Global Capitalism: 1500-present" is back on the curriculum. From 18 July to 1 August, we welcome students from all over the world to come and spend two weeks in Amsterdam studying with an excellent group of teachers. Our special guest this year is Richard Drayton, professor of Imperial History at King's College and a leading expert on capitalism's historical intersections with slavery, colonialism and ecological degradation.
It is a pleasure to contact you in order to invite you to a new activity. Through a second call for papers, we have the opportunity to send a proposal for a panel at the XIX World Economic History Congress, to be held at Paris on July 25-30, 2021 (http://www.wehc2021.org/en/accepted-sessions-first-call/).
