Please accept our apologies and make the appropriate adjustments.

Association for Heterodox Economics 9th Annual Conference 2007
Call for Papers
Pluralism in Action
13 - 15 July, 2007
University of the West of England, Bristol

The Ninth Annual Conference of the Association of Heterodox Economics (AHE)
will be held at the University of the West of England from 13th to 15th July

Last year's highly successful AHE conference yielded a stimulating and
original range of papers on pluralism in the social sciences. A striking
feature of the conference was the interdisciplinary character of the
contributions which explored the relation between economics and other
branches of the social sciences. The Ninth Annual Conference will build on
this success.

The conference will have both a thematic part and an open part. The AHE is
happy to consider papers of both types; however, priority will be given to
papers addressing the conference theme, "Pluralism in Action".  Papers are
particularly encouraged dealing with the impact of heterodox, pluralistic
and interdisciplinary approaches both on problems of policy, and on the
advancement of understanding, where mainstream approaches have failed or
fallen short.

For the open part of the conference, as in previous conferences we welcome
submissions dealing with issues of fundamental theory, teaching and learning
in economics, and the history of economic thought.

This year, the committee seeks to broaden the range of heterodox viewpoints.
We encourage single papers or sessions addressing Austrian, Behavioural,
Critical Realist, Ecological, Evolutionary, Feminist, Institutionalist,
Marxist, Post-Keynesian, Schumpeterian, or other non-mainstream approaches.
A feature of the AHE is as a forum for dialogue between different
viewpoints, and we encourage proposals for sessions which address a single
issue or theme from a variety of viewpoints.

The international character of the conference has been a vital factor in its
growing success. Scholars requiring documentation in support of visa or
funding applications should indicate this in their initial submission. At
present the AHE regrets that it has no funds to provide financial support,
but is actively seeking it and welcomes proposals from participants
regarding organizations for the AHE contact in search of support for
participants from outside the US and European Union.

Deadline for submission:

Proposals for single papers: please send an abstract of not more than 500
words by email only to the local organiser, Andrew Mearman
(andrew.mearman@uwe.ac.uk), AND the programme coordinator, Alan Freeman
(afreeman@iwgvt.org ), by 19th January 2007. Text, HTML, Word and PDF format
attachments are acceptable.

Proposals for sessions and streams: please indicate exactly what you are
proposing, giving the names and email addresses of the proposed speakers,
and attaching the abstracts (of not more than 500 words each) for their
papers. Send by email to Andrew Mearman and Alan Freeman, as above, by
Friday 19th January 2007.

The AHE Committee will consider all abstracts and will notify you of
acceptance or rejection of your proposal by Monday 12th February 2007.

Those whose abstracts have been accepted must send their full paper and
completed registration to be received by Friday 26th April 2007.

Parallel sessions will be 90 minutes long and will consist of two papers.
Sessions may have a discussant for each paper. The conference is to be
conducted in English.
