Papers and workshops proposals are being accepted for the URPE 2009
Annual Summer Conference held August 15 - 18, 2009.
The theme of this year’s conference is
“Economic Crises: Opportunities for Radical Change.”
Now is the time for Heterodox Economists of all persuasions
to find creative solutions and to do serious analysis and speak out
about the domestic and global economic recession and financial crisis!
As always we are looking for Political Economy papers from all
disciplines (including at least sociology, political science, urban
studies, and anthropology in addition to economics). The conference
always has a mix of relatively more technical presentations of
Political Economy research from scholars and graduate students in all
stages of development with more popular and activist oriented
presentations. Political Economy papers that address the current
economic crises are encouraged, especially those that say something
about how the current crisis provides opportunities for radical
change. More general political economy submissions are of course as
every year warmly welcomed as well !!
Please consider forming a workshop with 2 to 4 papers on a common
theme that your and colleagues might be working on. Or just submit a
paper. Please send all submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Workshops and papers will be accepted until all space is filled… while
last minute submissions are welcome they might not be accepted if
there is no space , so please get your submission in early.
