History on Wednesday: Virtue Capitalists: the rise and fall of the professional class in the Angloworld

Virtue Capitalists: the rise and fall of the professional class in the Angloworld

Associate Prof Hannah Forsyth, Australian Catholic University | 12:10pm, 18 October, 2023

 

In the last quarter of the nineteenth century, members of an established, English-speaking middle class built and consolidated a new category of work for themselves. This paper will explain the rise of the professional class in the nineteenth and early twentieth century, its hegemonic global expansion after the second world war, and its ‘fall’ from power in the late twentieth century.

About the speaker:

Hannah Forsyth is Associate Professor of History at the Australian Catholic University. Her new book Virtue Capitalists is due to be published late 2023. Hannah completed her PhD in history at the University of Sydney in 2012 and is author of A History of the Modern Australian University (2014).
