2022-23 Warren Center Faculty Fellowship

The 2022-23 Warren Center Faculty Fellowship will be on the theme of Capitalism’s Hardwiring: Money, Credit, and Finance in a Globalizing World, 1620-2020 led by Chris Desan (Harvard Law) and Kenneth Mack (Harvard Law).

The Warren Center, Harvard’s research center for United States history, invites applications for a workshop on Capitalism’s Hardwiring. Twice within the last two decades, the United States has kicked the monetary apparatus that formats its economy into crisis gear. Each time, the government leapt to rescue a financial infrastructure that had grown indispensable to modern markets even as it escaped the mooring of the “real economy.” As Americans confronted the devastation of home mortgage values in 2008, officials committed more than $5 trillion in lending, guarantees, or financing to firms operating in the capital markets. As the COVID-19 pandemic of 2021 wreaked extraordinary damage, particularly on people and communities in economic precarity, the Federal Reserve pledged somewhere between $5.5 and $8.5 trillion over a matter of weeks to maintain the markets for public bonds, corporate borrowing, and other financial assets. (By comparison, the size of the entire 2019 federal budget was $4.5 trillion.)  The central bank’s pledge dwarfed even the exceptional spending that Congress put in place over the same period –  and the Fed promised that it would do more if needed; there were no caps on several of its programs.

The crises we experience immediately expose a system fashioned over centuries.  The 2022-2023 Warren Center faculty fellowship takes capitalism’s monetary hardwiring as its subject. We define that hardwiring broadly to include those architectures of finance and credit that today so profoundly shape material distribution, political voice, and disciplinary knowledge. That subject locates the United States as part of a global drama, one that travels from the domestic law on bank liabilities to the geography of the Gold Standard, from the human tragedy of slave mortgages to the disembodied dynamics of foreign exchange markets, and from the parochial assumptions of theorists to the universalizing abstractions of their theory. Likewise, the subject encompasses ….
