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:

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!
