CFP: Heterodox Economics Meets LPE:  Institutions & Power (students & emerging scholars)

Oct 02, 2023

We are sharing this CALL FOR STUDENT & EMERGING SCHOLAR SUBMISSIONS on behalf of The Association for the Promotion of Political Economy and the Law (APPEAL), John Jay College Economics Department, John Jay College Law and Political Economy Society, and the Economics Department at the New School. The gathering will be held October 21st at The New School (6 East 16th Street, New York, NY). Abstracts are due October 2 and can be submitted HERE.

Heterodox Economics Meets Law & Political Economy: Institutions and Power

In response to the economic, political, and ecological crises that we face, this collaborative workshop invites students, scholars and policy makers to help in (re)building a heterodox economics framework that understands the role of institutions and power as it cuts across class, gender, and race lines.

Using Law and Political Economy as a guiding framework, this workshop will identify innovative methods of analysis from law, economics, sociology, or policy that can help interrogate and combat hegemonic and capitalist power. Bringing together scholars from across disciplines, we are committed to hosting a diversity of voices, featuring several panels of emerging scholarship selected from submissions alongside invited presentations from academics.

Students and emerging scholars interested in presenting should submit a 100-350 word abstract with titles by October 2.  We are interested in research projects at every stage of their development and do not necessarily require full paper submissions. Of particular interest to this conference is work that uses new methodological approaches to understanding how law, institutions and power can be incorporated into economic analysis.

We also welcome all interested students, scholars, and others to attend and participate in audience discussion. Advance registration will open soon and is required for all participants and presenters.  Please note that while the workshop is free of charge and will include lunch and refreshments, we are not able to provide support for travel or lodging. 

Participants are encouraged to support APPEAL by becoming a member (JOIN or DONATE); and also to join and/or support new LPE student groups at John Jay College and the New School.

FEATURED SCHOLAR WORK: Kirstin Munro (Assistant Professor of Economics at The New School for Social Research and author of “The Production of Everyday Life in Eco-Conscious Households: Compromise, Conflict and Complicity”) and JW Mason (Associate Professor of Economics at John Jay College and author of the forthcoming book “Money and Things”)

Roundtable with Martha McCluskey, Jamee Moudud, Lenore Palladino, Gaurav Mukherjee, Corinne Blalock, and John Whitlow.

Space for presentations is limited;  notice of accepted submissions will be provided the week of October 9. Again, abstracts are due October 2 and can be submitted HERE.
