Greetings!

Papers and workshops proposals are being accepted for the URPE 2009 Annual Summer Conference held August 15 – 18, 2009.  The theme of this year’s conference is “Economic Crises: Opportunities for Radical Change.”  Now is the time for Heterodox Economists of all persuasions to find creative solutions and to do serious analysis and speak out about the domestic and global economic recession and financial crisis!  As always we are looking for Political Economy papers from all disciplines (including at least sociology, political science, urban studies, and anthropology in addition to economics). The conference always has a mix of relatively more technical presentations of Political Economy research from scholars and graduate students in all stages of development with more popular and activist oriented presentations. Political Economy papers that address the current economic crises are encouraged, especially those that say something about how the current crisis provides opportunities for radical change. More general political economy submissions are of course as every year warmly welcomed as well !!

Please consider forming a workshop with 2 to 4 papers on a common theme that your and colleagues might be working on.  Or just submit a paper.  Please send all submissions to: laura.ebert@marist.edu .  Workshops and papers will be accepted until all space is filled… while last minute submissions are welcome they might not be accepted if there is no space , so please get your submission in early.
