*ICAPE 2022 Virtual Conference*
*Call for Papers*
January 9-10, 2022
*Conference theme: Pluralist Economics in a Post-Pandemic World*
The global economy is being buffeted by a series of crises. First, we have
the Coronavirus pandemic and recession which is wreaking widespread
devastation around the world in the face of inadequate public health
systems. Second, in the U.S., we have the crisis of racial stratification
and policing. The nationwide explosion of unrest following the murder of
George Floyd was only the latest indicator of the dissatisfaction with
racialized policing and ongoing racial inequities. Third, we have the
broader crisis of increasing inequality, and the myriad problems that
accompany an economic system structured to benefit the 1%. Fourth, we have
the global climate crisis, and the possibility of major disruptions to the
provision of food, water and other necessities coupled with increasingly
frequent and devastating natural disasters.
Heterodox and pluralistic mainstream economists are particularly
well-suited to analyze crises given their focus on real-world phenomena and
the forces behind deprivation and change. This conference is open to
papers, presentations, roundtables, and workshops that explore any issues
in a heterodox or pluralistic fashion. We are particularly interested in
papers that explore the following topics:
· The root causes and possible solutions to the myriad crisis
facing contemporary capitalism;
· Theoretical or applied work exploring any heterodox tradition,
the intersections and differences between heterodox traditions, and/or the
intersections and differences between mainstream and heterodox economics;
· The best methods and materials to use to teach pluralistically in
the current environment.
ICAPE, the International Confederation of Associations for Pluralism in
Economics, is committed to a broad, pluralistic approach to economics.
Founding member associations include the International Association For
Feminist Economics (IAFFE), the Union for Radical Political Economics
(URPE), the Association For Evolutionary Economics (AFEE), the Association
For Institutional Thought (AFIT), and the Association for Social Economics
(ASE). Submissions from members of these organizations are particularly
welcome, as are submissions from any economist committed to a pluralistic
approach to the discipline.
We welcome work from all strands of heterodox economic theory, including
evolutionary, ecological, complexity, institutional, feminist, Austrian,
Marxian, Sraffian, Post-Keynesian, behavioral/psychological, social,
radical political, critical realism, agent-based modeling, and general
heterodox economics. We are interested in research from *any* of the
perspectives listed above, and research by mainstream economists open to
incorporating a pluralistic approach. We are also particularly interested
in material from graduate students, sessions on pluralistic teaching, and
material on the state of pluralism in economics.
Submissions are due by Friday, October 1, 2021.
