How to attend
The Association for Evolutionary Economics (AFEE) South American Conference is a 2-day conference hosted by the Federal University of Paraná (Curitiba, Brazil), taking place on the 23nd-24th May 2024. The conference will take place in Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil, and will be organized by the Graduate Program in Economic Development (PPGDE) and Postgraduate Program in Public Policy (4P) of the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR), Brazil, in partnership with the Association for Evolutionary Economics (AFEE), the Brazilian Keynesian Association (AKB), and the EINST group, which organized the first institutionalist conference in Brazil. The Brazilian Minister of Education and the Young Scholars Initiative will partly sponsor the conference.
The “YSI Pre-conference event: Association for Evolutionary Economics South American Conference” is an aside event that will occur a day before the main event, 22nd May 2024. The pre-conference theme is “Understanding economic challenges from original institutionalist and post Keynesian perspectives”. We envision three sub-themes:
(1) the use of Original institutionalism and post Keynesianism as lenses to understand South American economic and social issues;
(2) possible cross-fertilizations between original institutionalism and post Keynesianism from a historical and/or methodological view;
(3) diversifying original institutionalism and post Keynesianism from the perspective of identity, gender, and location.
The YSI Pre-conference aims at offering a space for fruitful debates around original institutionalism and post Keynesianism between young and senior scholars. The YSI pre-conference is directed to graduate students in economics and related areas and will be conducted by mentors with experience in the field. Further, the papers approved for participation in the event will receive comments from the audience and senior scholars. The expected outcomes are (1) identifying a South American group interested in original institutionalism; and (2) motivating a cross-fertilization between original institutionalism and post Keynesianism.
The conference will be free of charge. Selected young scholars (normally, 5 years after their PhD completion) will be partly funded to attending the pre- and main conference.
Submission of extended abstract (maximum of 1,000 words) will be open from mid-December 2023 until 20th January 2024.
