Brown Bag: Dr. David Hope, "Exploiting Fur: Companies, Commerce, and Consumers in the British Atlantic World, 1783-1821"

In this Brown Bag lunch talk, Dr. David Hope will discuss his current research at the Clements Library as a recipient of the Jacob M. Price Fellowship. Dr. Hope is an economic historian and Economic History Society Anniversary Fellow — a one-year postdoctoral position co-sponsored by the Economic History Society, Newcastle University (UK), and the Institute of Historical Research (University of London). He is working on a monograph situating the fur trade within the wider Atlantic economy, offering new insights into the organization of overseas trade, the distribution and consumption of global luxuries, and the synergy between environment and empire.

Attendees are welcome to bring a lunch and eat during the presentation.
