Lexicon Keyword Conversation 1
The first Lexicon of Commodity Frontiers keyword conversation about “commodity frontier” took place on Wednesday 16th of June. Environmental historian and historical geographer Jason W. Moore provided an overture from his work on ‘Class, Climate & the Great Frontier. From Primitive Accumulation to the Great Implosion’ (available on https://jasonwmoore.com/academicpapers/).
The co-leaders of the Commodity Frontier Initiative, Mindi Schneider, Ulbe Bosma, Eric Vanhaute and Sven Beckert, offered commentary on Moore’s overture, and on the notion of commodity frontiers as the Lexicon’s central concept.
