APPEAL reading group:
What is Capitalism?
Friday August 20, 2021, 1:00pm, Eastern Daylight Time (UTC-4) via Zoom
Zoom link and readings will be emailed after you register.
After a break for the month of July, our next meeting of the APPEAL reading group will discuss Professor Sarah Haan’s article Corporate Governance and the Feminization of Capital, forthcoming in the Stanford Law Review. The paper explores the rise of female-majority shareholding in U.S. public companies during the first half of the twentieth century. It further analyzes how the subsequent shift to institutional investing obscures the gendered politics of corporate control. Professor Sarah Haan will give a short presentation of her paper, followed by an open discussion.
All are welcome, and participants need not attend each session, though we do ask participants to read the materials in advance. We also encourage participants to join APPEAL by signing up as a member, www.politicaleconomylaw.org.
We’ll send an electronic copy of the paper to those who register; for questions, email email@example.com with the subject line Capitalism Reading Group.
Professor Haan teaches courses on business associations, corporate governance, and the First Amendment at the Washington and Lee University School of Law. She writes about the intersection of corporate law and democracy.
We hope to “see” you August 20!
