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.

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
