Tuesday, October 24, 2017 - 12:30 to 14:00

Informal institutions preserve property rights and manage disputes when formal systems are weak. Changes to informal dispute resolution structures aim to improve bargaining and commitment to limit violence over the long term. Are long term institutional changes feasible, and if so, what are the impacts on property rights and investment?

Tuesday, October 24, 2017 - 17:00 to 19:00

This lecture will survey the theory, methods, and scholarship of “history from below” after the recent move in many disciplines toward a global frame of analysis. The talk reconstructs the largely forgotten life history of Benjamin Lay (1682-1759), a Quaker dwarf who worked around the Atlantic as a shepherd, a sailor, a glover, and a commoner and became one of the first to demand the total and unconditional emancipation of enslaved Africans worldwide.
