The 57th Annual Western Social Science Association conference will be held April 8-11, 2015, in Portland, OR, USA, at the Marriott Hotel. The WSSA invites proposals for both complete panels and individual papers. (Go to http://wssa.asu.edu for more information regarding the conference.)
The Association for Social Economics is in the process of developing a relationship with the Western Social Science Association and encourages proposals in all areas of social economics.
Please submit individual papers or complete panels concerning the study of the ethical and social causes and consequences of economic behavior, institutions, organizations, theory, and policy, and how these contribute to a sustainable, just, and efficient economy. Of particular interest, are papers devoted to furthering the recent ASE dialogue regarding topics such as ethics, development, neoliberalism, interpretations of Karl Polanyi, social economic analyses of race, gender, class and ethnicity, social economic analysis of crises, inequality, the reform of economics, the origins of social economics, and linkages to other heterodox traditions.
UPDATE: In addition, we are also seeking submissions for a joint AFIT/ASE session on the intersections and collaboration between Social and Institutional Economics.
