Australian Society of Heterodox (SHE) Economists Conferences

15th Annual SHE Conference

5 - 6 December 2016

Call for Papers

The 15th annual Australian Society of Heterodox Economists (SHE) Conference will be held on the 5th and 6th of December 2016 at the University of New South Wales, Sydney.

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 2016 the SHE Conference theme is: What future for global capitalism?

Uncertainty about the future of the world economy has been reinforced by recent events such as Brexit and the failure of Europe to emerge from their economic crisis. What does heterodox economic analysis suggest is the likely outcome, and what policy suggestions result?

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.

Single papers

All papers should include a 250 word abstract that clearly states the issue being addressed, its main points and argument. It should be stated, at the time of submission, if you require your paper to be refereed and if you wish your paper to be considered for a symposium.

The deadline for refereed papers is Monday 24 October 2016.

The deadline for non-refereed papers is Monday 7 November 2016.

Complete sessions

    We welcome proposals for complete sessions. Session proposals should be sent to p.kriesler@unsw.edu.au and include the following information:

  • A short title
  • A description of the session which should be no more than one page
  • The names of the proposed participants in the session
  • An abstract for each paper to be included in the session
  • The name and email address of the session organiser

The deadline for the submission of session proposals is Friday 23 September 2016.

Symposia

We encourage proposals for symposia which address a single topic or issue. The SHE Conference Committee will work with symposia organisers, when constructing the conference program, to ensure a coherent list of sessions for each symposium, and schedule these so that participants can follow a symposium across more than one session. Symposium proposals should be submitted to p.kriesler@unsw.edu.au and include the following information:

  • A short title (no more than 5 words)
  • A short description of the type of paper that would be suitable for inclusion in the symposium
  • The name and email address of the symposium organiser

The deadline for symposium proposals is Friday 23 September 2016.

Deadlines

The SHE Conference Committee will consider all proposals for papers, sessions and symposia, and will notify you of the acceptance or rejection of your proposal.

Complete session proposals and symposium proposals are due by Friday 23 September 2016 and will be notified by Tuesday 4 October 2016.

The deadline for refereed papers is Monday 24 October 2016.

The deadline for non-refereed papers is Monday 7 November 2016.
