Ajit Sinha, who most listmembers are familiar with from PEN-L and
elsewhere, is our latest addition.

I asked Ajit to give a description of his current activities, research,
etc. that he would be willing to share with the list. Rather than
summarize, I think you will find the following highly informative:

I'm currently teaching at the department of
economics at University of Newcastle in Australia. Did my Ph.D on the topic
'The Concept of Value in Marx's Economic Writings: A Critique' from
SUNY-Buffalo. Before that I studied at Delhi School of Economics. My
dissertation topic is quite self-explanatory about my research interest. My
attempt has been to develop a Marxian synthesis of Althusser and Sraffa.
Soon I intend to embark upon a new research project (the value project is
pretty much over), which will deal with the question of causality and
non-linearity. You could mention that recently I co-edited with Paul Z an
special issue of Research in Political Economy entitled 'Latest Development
in Marxist Theory'. I have been closely associated with URPE for about 8
years, and have served as member of the editorial board of RRPE. I'm also a
member of editorial board of 'Encyclopedia of Political Economy' being
published by Routledge. And was a founding member of the editorial board of
'Research and Society'-- a graduate journal published by the graduate group
in marxist studies at SUNY-Buffalo. In my teen-age days, back in Patna,
India, I was also associated or rather was a founding member of the
editorial board of a political Hindi Magazine called 'Prakria'. Now, I know
you are getting bored. So I must stop. Thanks again, ajit

No, I wasn't bored at all. There's a lot of good stuff that I didn't know
about before.

Ajit: Welcome aboard!

In solidarity, Jerry
