QUANTITATIVE MARXISM

This is advance notice of a planned stream at next year’s conference of the Association for Heterodox Economics, to be held at Nottingham Trent University.

See: http://www.open.ac.uk/socialsciences/hetecon/conference/

Below is a draft of the proposal to the conference organisers.

As you will see the aim is develop the work begun by the 1991 volume edited by Paul Dunne, and recently continued by the Developing Quantitative Marxism workshops at Bristol.

Please send expressions of interest to me in the first instance.

1) Appeal for submissions

This initiative aims to develop empirical Marxist analysis as an alternative perspective to the prevailing orthodoxy and to create a coherent, influential and self-sustaining research agenda.

Papers are invited on any topic in Marxist political economy that deal with empirical issues and/or use quantitative information and methods. The intention is not to debate the validity of the approach, but to use it to show the power and potential of Marxist analysis of capital.

The theme is in the tradition of the edited volume Quantitative Marxism (Dunne 1991), and the recent conferences in this field organised at Bristol (UK) (see http://carecon.org.uk/QM/).

Papers revisiting topics covered in Dunne (1991) are welcome, as are ones in fresh areas: the key aim is to develop a comprehensive and contemporary research agenda.

4) Peer review process

The theme organisers hope to accept all papers that appear to relate to the theme’s scope as described in the appeal, subject to generally accepted academic standards. In the event that resource constraints compel further selection, the theme organisers will (a) give priority to individual papers whose approach demonstrates specific regard to the pluralist principles of the AHE, and (b) seek to give effect to pluralist principles in the overall programme of the theme.
