Scroll down to content About The Critical Internationalization Studies Network brings together scholars, practitioners, educators, students, and community organizations interested in reimagining dominant patterns of relationship, representation, and resource distribution in the internationalization of education. Beyond fostering engagements between diverse critical perspectives, we seek to facilitate collaboration, the sharing of information about events and opportunities, and the exchange of knowledge and pedagogical resources. While the emphasis of the network is on higher education contexts, there are many resonances with K and informal education contexts as well.
The Research Network Macroeconomics and Macroeconomic Policies FMM organises its 18th annual conference on Inequality and the Future of Capitalism with introductory lectures on heterodox economics for graduate students.
As the outbreak of the financial crisis approaches its seventh anniversary, large parts of the world economy are still in stagnation.
The financial system remains highly fragile, and high levels of unemployment and income inequality are posing a serious threat to social peace and political stability in many Mainstream internationalisation theories.
Some commentators even see the world economy doomed to secular stagnation with high levels of unemployment being the new normal. Others point to the "return of capital", with wealth and inheritances becoming once again the dominant source of economic inequality in a context of low income growth.
Is rising inequality an outcome, or rather one of the root causes of economic fragility and stagnation? Can capitalist production be sustained in the presence of increasing inequality, particularly in the top income and wealth percentiles?
What can macroeconomic policy, macroprudential regulation and labour market institutions do to counter these trends? How could international cooperation and organisations promote equality and stability? And what are the implications for the teaching of economics?
How can the economics curriculum be changed to account for the developments we see? The submission of papers in the following areas is encouraged: Causes and consequences of inequality and stagnation Theory and empirics of the interlinkages between distribution and growth Possibilities and limitations of regulatory and fiscal policy Long-run perspectives of capitalist production and distribution Working time and employment in a stagnating economy Reform of the economics curriculum For the open part of the conference the submission of papers on the general subject of the Research Network — Macroeconomics and Macroeconomic Policies — is encouraged as well.
We also ask for the submission of papers for graduate student sessions on both the specific topic of this conference and the general subject of FMM. There will also be a day of introductory lectures for graduate students on 30 October prior to the opening panel.
Hotel costs will be covered for participants presenting in the graduate student sessions for a maximum of four nights from 30 October to 2 November. The detailed Call for Papers is available here pdf. Please send an abstract max. Decisions will be made in early August.
In case of acceptance, full papers are due by 15 October, to be posted on the conference web page. The conference language is English.
Registration forms for the conference and the introductory lectures will be made available online via this conference webpage by mid-August. More on the Research Network and the conference: Moreover, there is no shortage of empirical evidence suggesting that corporations have found in women a new source of competitive advantage and ethical concern.
Inspired by these developments, we aim to initiate a critical interdisciplinary dialogue advancing our theoretical and empirical knowledge on the elective affinity between corporations and women, and critical of the underlying gender constructs that privilege a variety of corporate masculinities.
We welcome papers from a broad range of disciplines including international political economy, sociology, geography, social anthropology, law, gender studies and heterodox economics addressing, amongst others, one or more of the following questions: Where does this leave men?
And why is this happening at this particular historical juncture? What does the discursive coupling of corporate gains with gender equality tell us about the pliability of neoliberalism?
Which constellations of actors and institutions are entwined in the legitimation of this discourse and its practices Whether in the boardroom or at the end of supply chains, how are corporate commitments to gender equality translated in practice?
Or do they signal more profound transformations in social relations of production and reproduction How are feminists responding to the incorporation of gender concerns in corporate policies, sourcing and sale strategies, corporate social responsibility programmes and philanthropic commitments?
The one-day workshop will feature a keynote address by V. Notifications of acceptance will be sent in mid-September.
