Call for papers

Post Keynesian Economics Study Group (PKSG) is organizing its 9th Annual PhD Student Conference on 31 May 2017, 9am-7pm. The presenters will be PhD students, 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 the students to present a draft paper out of their PhD dissertation, and receive feedback from the senior researchers as well as other students. The target group for presenters is PhD students in their second and third year. We expect completed dissertation chapters or papers; we will not usually accept dissertation outlines/proposals for presentation.  We also normally do not accept papers based on MSc thesis. Finally please note that we invite submission of novel contributions at the stage of pre-publication and do not encourage the submission of literature review papers.   

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 referee (who could be your PhD supervisor) by email to phdconference.econ@greenwich.ac.uk. The deadline for submissions is 6 March 2017. Applicants will be informed by early-April. Please also note that we will ask for full papers on 2 May, so please submit an abstract only if the deadline for the full paper will be feasible for you.

The PhD Student Conference will be followed on 1 June 2017 by the Annual Workshop of the PKSG at the University of GreenwichQA080. All students are welcome to attend. See http://www.postkeynesian.net/index.html for the previous Workshops. A further attraction is the lectures by Dr. Maria Nikolaidi and Dr. Yannis Dafermos of the PKSG on “Post-Keynesian stock-flow consistent modelling: theory and methodology” and “Building a stock-flow consistent model in practice (lab session)” as part of an advanced PhD level series of lectures at the University of Greenwich on 2 June.
