Call for abstracts: ASE sessions at the Midwest Economics Association, March 31-April 2, 2017

Association for Social Economics at the Midwest Economics Association Annual Meeting

Cincinnati, OH, March 31 - April 2, 2017

Deadline: October 6, 2016


Theme: The Economy as Social - Studies in Social Economics

Recently there has been a revival of research that takes as its starting point the idea that economies are constituted through relationships and networks of social solidarity, communitarian ethics, and other-regarding behaviors.  This has implications for re-interpreting, re-imagining and reconstituting economic concepts and theories such as human/social capital, community/social enterprise, technological innovation, human capabilities and solidarity economies.  We invite papers from researchers and teachers that present case studies, empirical analyses, theoretical essays or pedagogical explorations that address these and other topics in social economics. 

Please submit a copy of the paper title and abstract (up to 250 words) to Bruce Pietrykowski, Association for Social Economics Midwest Regional Director, at bpie@umich.edu no later than October 6, 2016.
