Capitalist Crisis

CRISIS, AUSTERITY & RESISTANCE – A CONFERENCE ORGANISED BY THE LIMERICK MARXISM READING GROUP

Call for Papers

The Limerick Marxism Reading Group holds its second conference on April 25-26 2012 at the University of Limerick.

 The event aims to facilitate the open development of left perspectives on the ongoing economic crisis. The transfer of public funds to banks, bondholders, speculators and developers has generated anger and protest, but as yet there has been little in the way of mass resistance. This years’ conference has been organised with the view to encouraging the development and dissemination of coherent left perspectives on all related issues, and a comradely environment for considering the possibilities for the development of a broad-based resistance in the coming years.

Speakers will include: Kathleen Lynch, Andy Storey, Conor McCabe, Lee F. Monaghan, Kieran Allen, Helena Sheehan, Tom Turner, Terrence McDonough, Michael Taft, Marnie Holborow, Henry Silke and Tom O’Connor

Additional papers/talks relating to the following themes are particularly welcome:

• Ongoing campaigns and current forms of resistance

• The role of the media in the current crisis

• The gendered impact of austerity

• Historical perspectives

• The role of trade unions

• Prospects for left unity

 

Deadline for abstracts: March 30, 2012.

All proposals to be sent to limerickmarxistreadinggroup@live.ie

Papers/talks from activists are particularly welcome.

Proposals should include: Title, presenter’s name and contact information, institution or other affiliation (if any), research interests, a short 50 word biography and a brief abstract (no more than 500 words)

The conference is kindly sponsored by the Irish Social Sciences Platform (ISSP), the Institute for the Study of Knowledge in Society (ISKS), the Department of Sociology, Department of History, and the Department of Personnel and Employment Relations,UniversityofLimerick.

ANDREW KLIMAN AT BOOKMARKS BOOKSHOP

PRESENTS

The Failure of Capitalist Production
with Andrew Kliman
5 March, 6.30pm £2* (refreshments inc)

The recent financial crisis and Great Recession have been analysed endlessly but this is the first book to conclude, on the basis of in-depth analyses of official US data, that Marx’s crisis theory can explain these events.

Kliman’s conclusion is simple but shocking: short of socialist transformation, the only way to escape the stagnant, crisis-prone economy is to restore profitability through full-scale destruction of existing wealth, something not seen since the Depression of the 1930s.

Venue: Bookmarks Bookshop, 1 Bloomsbury Street, WC1B 3QE

ECONOMICS: UNFIT FOR PURPOSE

Call for Papers can be seen at: http://www.hetecon.com/ or http://www.iippe.org/wiki/Third_International_Conference_in_Political_Economy

Panel/Stream Proposal for AHE/FAPE/IIPPE Conference, Paris July 5-8th, 2012

Economics: Unfit for Purpose

The current crisis and recession have cruelly exposed the inadequacies of mainstream economics in all of its versions to a wide and, at times, incredulous audience. Yet, there is very little sign that significant changes are underway within the mainstream to acknowledge let alone to take account of its continuing inadequacies. Indeed, it is such a lack of critical introspection and capacity to confront external realities that have marked the discipline over the period of neoliberalism and beyond.

Whilst such inadequacies have long been recognised, criticised and, to a large extent, addressed by heterodox economists, the latter continue to be marginalised within the discipline. Nonetheless, the current circumstances offer a timely occasion on which to revisit the nature of the mainstream and to argue for alternatives, not least for the new generations of students and scholars who will be informed by the huge gap between the concerns of the discipline and the nature of its object of enquiry, the economy.

In this vein, we call for submissions under the general theme of “Unfit for Purpose”, especially seeking contributions that deal with the main fields or methods of economics but without wishing to exclude more specialised topics. Ideally, contributions should explain how and why the discipline became the way it is, what is wrong with it, and what are the alternatives.

Abstracts should be submitted to Ben Fine (bf@soas.ac.uk) and Dimitris Milonakis (milonakis@econ.soc.uoc.gr) by end of January, 2012, but preferably earlier.

TOPICS IN RADICAL POLITICAL ECONOMY: MARXIST THEORY

We invite graduate students and young researchers to participate in the URPE Summer School entitled Topics in Radical Political Economy: Marxist Theory, which will take place in Amherst, Massachusetts on the UMass campus on May 24-27, 2011 (right before the World Association for Political Economy conference on May 27-29). Our aim is to provide a forum for the discussion of ideas and developments in Marxian economics, and to help establish ties for closer collaboration between young Marxian economists.

Our speakers and topics will be as follows:

Deepankar Basu: Marxian Macroeconomics: An Introduction to the Circuit of Capital Model
Al Campbell: Humanist Marxism, Structuralist Marxism and Revolution
David Kotz: Marxist Crisis Theory: conflicting analyses and possible resolutions
Fred Moseley: Marx’s Logical Method and the Transformation Problem
Paddy Quick: Principal and Secondary Relations of Production: the Transitions between Modes of Production

Each day will be organized into 7-8 hours of lectures and discussions, to be directed by the invited speakers. Suggested readings will be distributed in advance.

Participants will have already taken a first course in Marxian political economy and will be expected to be familiar with portions of Capital (at least Volume I). The presentations by the speakers will be designed to inform participants about recent developments, equip them with theoretical and empirical tools and inspire them to take up research in Marxian political economy.

We ask for a $15 registration fee. URPE scholarships are available for those who will also attend the WAPE conference, though they require a separate application.

To apply for the Summer School, please fill out the enclosed application form and send it to one or both of the following:

Hyun Woong Park: ppphhw@gmail.com
Mihnea Tudoreanu: mtudorea@econs.umass.edu

Our organizers are also available to answer any and all questions and concerns. Please distribute this invitation widely to those who you think might be interested. We look forward to seeing many of you in May!
