Description


Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies

In this two-day closed workshop, we will explore, through case studies, how and why the history of commodity processing unfolded so unevenly. We are interested in all geographical regions and approaches from various disciplines. Papers will be grouped in thematic panels, pre-circulated to workshop participants, and panel discussion will be opened by a chair/discussant. Paper-givers can then reply succinctly, giving way to open discussion. Papers presented at the workshop may be considered for online publication in the Commodities of Empire Working Papers series: https://commoditiesofempire.org.uk/publications/working-papers/
