Social Sciences Brown Bag
There will be a Social Sciences Brown Bag at 3 p.m. Wednesday (Dec. 14) in AOB 201. Mark Hendrickson will present "The Sesame that Opens the Door of Trade: John Hays Hammond and Foreign Direct Investment in Mining 1880-1920."
Hammond is associate professor, department of history, UC San Diego and a Visiting Mellon Fellow.
In the last decades of the nineteenth century, American mining engineers fanned out around the globe to potential or existing mines in China, Mexico, Siberia, South Africa and beyond.
Hendrickson’s pre-circulated paper and talk examine the rise and work of mining engineer John Hays Hammond and the mining engineers, geologists and capitalists with whom he worked. The paper reveals ways that a segment of the investor class depended upon members of the emerging professional middle class of university-trained mining experts for collaboration — and even inspiration — regarding possible sources of remunerative investment.
