Dear colleague and fellow heterodox economist,
Between now and January 15, I hope you will feel inspired (or coerced, whichever you find more compelling) to propose a paper for the ICAPE conference on Economic Pluralism for the 21st Century, to be held June 1-3 at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.
Like ICAPE's inaugural conference in 2003, this is a "big tent" conference open to all economic thinkers, topics, and fields of specialization.
We have received proposals so far from scholars in 12 countries (Belgium, China, Colombia, Denmark, Germany, India, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, the U.K., and the U.S.) who represent a several distinct traditions of thought. This is a healthy start.
But in order to fulfill ICAPE's mission of promoting intellectual diversity and inter-paradigmatic exchange in economic scholarship and education, we need to elicit proposals from a critical mass of Austrian, Feminist, Institutional-Evolutionary, Marxian, Postcolonial, Post Keynesian, Postmodern, Radical, Social, Sraffian, and OUT (Otherwise Unorthodox and Talented) economists.
In short, we need more proposals from economic thinkers like YOU!
If you would like to join us for three days of unusually good conference conversation, food, and drink in Salt Lake City next June, please send a 250-word abstract to Rob Garnett (r.garnett at tcu.edu <mailto:r.garnett at tcu.edu> ) no later than January 15.
Or, to learn more about the conference or ICAPE itself (the International Confederation of Associations for Pluralism in Economics), please visit our web site: www.icape.org <http://www.icape.org/> .
We really hope to hear from you!
