Overview

  • My work lies at the intersection of the history of capitalism and U.S. intellectual history. My book project, which is based off my dissertation, is a history of the concept of human capital. It is titled The Roots of Human Capital: Citizenship, Property, and Political Economy, 1830-1960, and is under contract with the University of Pennsylvania Press in the Intellectual History of the Modern Age series (http://www.upenn.edu/pennpress/series/IHM.html). You can read more about it at my personal website (https://andrewseal.wordpress.com/).

    I received my PhD with honors in 2017 from Yale University and graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth College. I regularly blog at the Society for US Intellectual History (https://s-usih.org/author/andrew-seal/).
