Call for papers for the 14th Pan-European Conference on International Relations, 16–19 September 2020, Msida, Malta.
Political Economy Beyond Boundaries, a new EISA PEC standing section, is inviting paper, panel and roundtable proposals.
The section aims to develop a sustained research network of scholars working in and beyond International Studies to promote critical research on the global political economy. Grounded in growing calls to diversify the disciplinary focus of (International) Political Economy, the section offers a home for scholars to study contemporary capitalism and its gendered and racialised operation at the global, local and household levels. The section aims to advance an explicitly “global” outlook for political economy research and provide concrete roadmaps to overcome the pitfalls of Eurocentric knowledge production in (International) Political Economy. To this end, the section prioritises and promotes knowledge produced in and for the global South. Section chairs are keen to utilise this platform as a vehicle to design meaningful collaborations between scholars in the global South and North.
PEBB adopts a radical and pluralist vision of political economy and welcomes contributions from scholars working in/across the social sciences and humanities. We primarily aim to provide a platform at PECs to analyse the following topics, but are more than happy to accept proposals that engage with other relevant themes:
- Racial capitalism
- Climate breakdown (extraction, dispossession, climate justice)
- Production and reproduction
- Democracy, emancipation, and political and socio-economic alternatives
- Global agriculture, agroecology and food sovereignty
- Contemporary theoretical debates in political economy with a focus on perspectives from the global South
- Mentoring/career development sessions for doctoral researchers/ECRs and scholars from the global South
A detailed description of the standing section’s parameters and objectives can be found on the Political Economy Beyond Boundaries website. Please also check our equity and access statement.
We welcome individual paper, panel and roundtable proposals. Proposals must be submitted via the online submission system. Please indicate in your application that your proposal is submitted for Section S25. The closing date for paper, panel and roundtable proposals is midnight (CET) on 16 March 2020.
If you have any questions about the section, please contact the section chairs Dr Cemal Burak Tansel and Dr Lisa Tilley.
