Society of Heterodox Economists (SHE) Conference
From: Monday December 2, 2013, 12:00 am
To: Tuesday December 3, 2013, 12:00 am
The 12th annual Australian Society of Heterodox Economists (SHE) Conference will be held on the 2nd and 3rd of December 2013. The annual SHE Conference provides a vital forum for the discussion of alternatives to mainstream economics. The Conference provides a broad pluralistic and interdisciplinary forum to discuss issues of importance to heterodox economists. For 2013, the SHE Conference theme is Heterodox economics and the crisis that won't go away. Despite a prolonged economic crisis, which has led to increasing levels of unemployment and low rates of growth, particularly throughout Europe and in the USA, governments and mainstream economists are still talking about balancing budgets and the necessity of austerity measures. Heterodox economists have argued that suggested policies will only deepen the crisis. This year’s conference will focus on the ongoing implications for all sectors of the economy of the crisis, as well as consider viable policy recommendations. Submission details: Submissions are invited for single papers, complete sessions and symposia (comprising more than one session) relevant to the over-arching conference theme, or which discuss issues of importance from perspectives which differ from, or critically examine, mainstream economics. The deadline for refereed papers is Monday 14 October 2013. The deadline for non-refereed papers is Monday 28 October 2013. For further information, please see conference website.
