Frost Lecture Series 2015 at WU in #SalemOR: Ed Baptist – Monday!


Frost Lecture 2015:

Capitalism and Slavery: Not an Accidental Connection

The story of capitalism’s origins is a story about our origins. In his controversial new book, Cornell historian Ed Baptist argues that slavery in the United States was much more deeply connected to the origins of American capitalism than we like to think. He will talk about how and why he came to research this connection, and it’s human consequences.

about the Frost History Lecture Series

The Frost History Lecture Series was made possible by a generous gift in 2011 from Allan ’64 and Fran Frost.  Allan and Fran established the Frost History Lectureship Fund in honor of Allan’s brother O.W. (Jack) Frost, an English professor at Willamette from 1954-1963, and in memory of his brother David Frost ’57, L’60.
