We invite young scholars to submit abstracts. Selected participants will provide input to our discussion with short presentations. We welcome contributions on the following:
- The role of economics and of economists.
- The arch of academic economics over the 20th century, and the various paradigm shifts that have occurred.
- The possible elements of an economic paradigm for the 21st century, and which questions, methodologies and approaches may be incorporated in future curricula, research agendas and the discipline as a whole.
- The challenges posed at the boundaries of economics by pluralism and contributions and inputs from other disciplines.
Furthermore, we will develop a research agenda for the Philosophy of Economics Working Group and discuss future projects for fall 2018 / spring 2019.
Travel and accommodation support may be available for selected participants.
Our friends from the Netzwerk Plurale Oekonomik will participate as guest association.
In order to apply please submit your abstract by 5 June.
