IN June 2016, JIAS collaborated with the Centre for Indian Studies in Africa (CISA) at Wits University to stage a major workshop entitled ‘Revisiting the History of Capitalism’. Held at Wits University, and attended by scholars from three continents, the workshop formed part of growing efforts to revise Eurocentric perspectives on capitalism and its origins proceeding from the standpoint of producing knowledge from the Global South.
The workshop was funded by the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, with additional funding from the School of Commerce, Law and Management and the Humanities Graduate Centre of the University of the Witwatersrand. A report on the proceedings has been completed. To download the report, click here.
