Thorstein Veblen Ellen S. Richards Hazel Kyrk Elizabeth H. Hoyt
My work focuses on consumption in the history of American economic thought (1885-1936) and the issues that its study has implied in the development of the discipline. I am particularly interested in the contribution of women economists at the beginning of the 20th century who were part of a double legacy of the Home Economics Movement and institutionalism. In general, I am interested in questions of “disciplinary boundaries” and the role that epistemological issues play in the construction of the identity of disciplines.
