We’re a network of scholars who seek to develop enchantment as an organizing theme in historical studies of capitalism. We hope to provide a platform for those interested in the historical role of enchantment as a tool, structure, or foundation for the organisation and the development of modern markets, economic institutions, and economic relationships.


Would you like to present some work-in-progress at our virtual meetings? Contact us by October 15 with a title, an abstract of 200-400 words, and a brief bio. Presentations are 10-15 minutes, followed by a discussion. Please include your time zone and preferred dates (Thursdays or Fridays) in your message.

This summer and fall, we have been talking to scholars of enchantment about their work; check out our new podcast section! Our roundtable discussions are also still available as memos, and consider contributing to our open Zotero folder.

If you’re keen to stay in the loop, join our mailing list or get in touch!
