The Great Depression as a global crisis, 1927-37: What do we know?
Stefan Link, Associate Professor of History, Dartmouth College,

Abstract: Economic historians understand well the mechanisms and effects of the Great Depression in Europe and the United States. But the Depression was a crisis of global proportions, affecting all areas of the world that had been integrated into world markets over the previous decades. This talk reconstructs what we know about how the Depression played out in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, and asks if we can assemble the pieces to arrive at a global understanding of this transformative crisis.
