I recently sent you a message announcing ICAPE's second international conference ("Economic Pluralism for the 21st Century") next June 1-3 at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.
Unfortunately my description made the conference sound very specialized and narrow -- as if we were seeking only papers on the topic of pluralism per se.
Quite the contrary, this is a "big tent" conference at which all topics and schools of thought are welcome. Our goal is to create a uniquely diverse and inclusive conference, open to all who share ICAPE's commitment to the promotion of pluralism in economic scholarship and education. To make this happen, however, we need to include your work and the work of other scholars from the theoretical traditions and professional associations in which your work is rooted.
So, what are you working on now that you find most exciting? What topic would you like to write about and present to a lively and broad-minded audience?
The previous ICAPE conference in 2003 featured a broad range of panels including:
Knowledge and Welfare: Hayek, Sen, and Schumacher
New Connections among Heterodox Traditions
Towards a More Policy-Relevant Economics
Financial Capitalism and Economic Policy
Academic vs. Popular Economics
Marx's Open System of Value
Post Keynesian Institutionalism
Social Dimensions of Consumer Behavior
New Visions and Strategies for the Heterodox Economics Movement
Teaching Heterodox Economics
Virtues and Limits of Social Sustainability
International Political Economy: Theory and Policy
Humanistic Alternatives to Neoclassical Economics
Economics as a Holistic and Reflexive Social Science
With your help, we will have an even broader and richer set of conversations in Salt Lake City.
If you would like to participate, please send a brief abstract (200-250 words) to Rob Garnett (r.garnett at tcu.edu <mailto:r.garnett at tcu.edu> ).
