‘New Histories of Neo-Liberalism’

RHS Panel — ‘New Histories of Neo-Liberalism’,

13 October 2022

 

 

The next in our series on leading themes and concepts in History.

Historical studies of neo-liberalism are much in evidence. The early 2020s have seen new monographs, edited collections and journal articles — offering us a growing range of perspectives on this subject. ‘New Histories of Neo-Liberalism’ brings together five historians who’ve made significant recent interventions, with reference to diverse geographies, political structures, chronologies and methodologies. In doing so, the panel will identify and explore a prominent, resonant and much debated theme in historical research.
