If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr AM Price.

For the past decade I have been working on a book about the history of the emotional world economy. Not the history of emotions, but about affectively-charged arguments about how people came to depend on others for survival and prosperity and what it has meant for others to depend on them. Or us. The story begins in the mid-eighteenth century. What I will present is the final chapter about the winding and unwinding of what came to be called globalization (the latest shorthand for interdependence), focusing on the arguments and counter-arguments about resources, expansion, limits, and life in an uncentered but integrated world.
