The Online Panel Discussion “Capitalism in Motion”
As part of the event series “Geisteswissenschaft im Dialog” (GiD; Humanities in Dialogue) the GiD Lab online panel discussion “Capitalism in Motion. Imagining, Transforming, and Inventing Economic Forms over Time” aimed to discuss the role of human imagination in creating capitalism, the way people shared ideas and norms through speech acts and the way replication and innovation have interacted across geographical and cultural boundaries, forging institutions.
The event took place on 5 November 2020 at the Berlin Science Week and was organized by the German Historical Institute in Rome (GHI Rome) and the Central Office of the Max Weber Foundation in Bonn (MWS). Idea and concept came from Dr. Carlo Taviani, who is Project Researcher at the GHI Rome and part of the Standing Working Group of the GHI Rome “Genoese Merchant Networks in Africa and across the Atlantic Ocean (ca. 1450–1530)”.
