11th Annual PhD Student Conference

Goldsmiths, University of London

Room Deptford Town Hall, Room B, Goldsmiths, University of London, SE14 6NW
28 May 2019 9 a.m. – 7 p.m.

The Post Keynesian Economics Society (PKES) is calling for participants to its 11th Annual PhD Student Conference on 28 May 2019, 9am-7pm. Presenters will be PhD students in their second and third year who are currently enrolled in a PhD programme, and are working on topics relevant to Post Keynesian economics and political economy. The aim is to give an opportunity to students to present a draft paper out of their PhD dissertation and receive feedback from senior researchers, as well as other students.

We invite submission of novel contributions at the stage of pre-publication. Thus, we expect completed dissertation chapters or papers for submission rather than literature reviews. Note that we usually do not accept dissertation outlines or papers based on Master theses for presentation. 

Please submit an abstract of a paper (about 250 words) and a brief cover letter describing your research interests, dissertation and the name and email address of a potential referee (who could be your PhD supervisor) by email to The deadline for submissions is 31 March 2019. Applicants will be informed by mid-April. Please also note that we will ask for full papers on 6 May, so please submit an abstract only if you can meet the deadline for the full paper.

The PhD Student Conference will be followed by the Annual PKES Workshop at Goldsmiths on 29 May 2019. All students are welcome to attend. The programme of the Annual Workshop will be available on this website shortly.
