Weekend Update

I am reblogging my previous post (see below) as I have been busy preparing a month-by-month outline and TED-talk-like presentation of Adam Smith’s 1766 sojourn in Paris. Among other things, I have also added two new sections to part one of my work on Adam Smith in Paris. One of the new sections is devoted to Adam Smith’s travel companions in Paris: Duke Henry (Henry Scott), the 3rd Duke of Buccleuch (whose 1760 portrait is also posted below), and his younger brother Hew Campbell Scott. The other new section surveys Smith’s reputation among the philosophes of Paris. I will post excerpts from both new sections soon …

(With apologies to SNL stars Michael Che and Colin Jost.) I will be attending the 92nd Annual Meeting of the Southern Economic Association (SEA) this weekend, where I will be moderating a panel on “New Perspectives on Adam Smith” (see the full SEA schedule here). I was also invited to present my work on Adam Smith’s ten-month visit to Paris in 1766. I have made significant additions and revisions to part one of my “Adam Smith in Paris” manuscript, beginning with the title. It is now titled: “Through the Eyes of Horace Walpole: Adam Smith in Paris (February to April, 1766).” I will survey the other substantive changes I have made to my work in my next few posts.
