The Post-Keynesian Economics Society (PKES) is organising its 12th annual PhD student conference on 11 May 2021. This year’s conference will be held online during UK daytime*. The conference aims to give students an opportunity to present a chapter of their PhD dissertation and receive detailed and structured feedback from a senior researcher from PKES.

We invite students who are in a later stage of their PhD and who work on topics relevant to Post-Keynesian and heterodox economics to apply to present. We highly encourage submissions of completed dissertation chapters that qualify as a novel contribution to the literature and are at the stage of pre-publication. Dissertation proposals, literature reviews or papers based on a master’s thesis will usually not be considered.

Please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words of the chapter you wish to present and a cover letter of up to 300 words describing your research interests, how your dissertation topic relates to heterodox economics, and the name and email address of a referee (who could be your PhD supervisor) by email to The deadline for submissions is Friday, 5 March 2021.

Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their submission by late March. Please also note that successful applicants are expected to submit a full version of their paper by 11 April 2021 the latest. Please bear this deadline in mind when applying.

PKES annual workshop: The PhD Student Conference will be followed by the Annual Workshop of the Post-Keynesian Economics Society, which will be held online this year. All students are welcome to attend. See  for more info.

* The exact timing will be communicated closer to the day. It will be a full day event running during UK daytime. We will do our best to accommodate applicants from different time zones.

This conference is organised with the support of the Institute for Political Economy, Finance, and Accountability (PEGFA), at the University of Greenwich.
