5th Pluralumn* Workshop: “Empowering Young Minds”

**Please circulate this call for papers for the Pluralumn* Workshop in Germany among young scholars. **


August 6-8, 2024 | University of Duisburg-Essen, Duisburg, Germany

The Pluralumn* group of the German Network for Pluralism in Economics calls for papers and presentations for its 5th Scientific Workshop. The workshop is open to all young scholars and early-career researchers, from advanced Master’s students to PostDocs. We welcome papers that take a pluralist approach to economics and from any field or school of thought within economics. Likewise, we encourage submissions from adjacent disciplines such as sociology, political science, psychology, history and philosophy that discuss economic phenomena or aim to enhance economic methods and methodology. The aim of the Pluralumn* workshop is to bring together young scholars and early-career researchers to enable exchange between colleagues one would rarely meet at specialised conferences and symposia. The workshop will offer two distinct presentation formats depending on the state of the research to be presented:

● Formal talk: Submit and present a paper draft (for far developed projects).

● Idea consolidation café: In this collaborative workshop, research ideas can be discussed and receive feedback on their topic and method.

The conference language is English and there will be an option for hybrid participation. It will be free of charge and we hope to provide a large number of participants with a stipend to cover travel expenditures. Further information will be provided with acceptance notification. We encourage especially submissions by:

● FINTA+ (Female, Inter, Trans, A-Gender people)

● Structurally marginalised people in economics, including people with disabilities, and first-generation academics

Submissions deadline: May 19, 2024. Either an abstract (max. 500 words) or description of the research idea is required. Expect notifications of acceptance by mid to end June. Conference contributions should be in English to reach a broad audience. Participation without presenting is, of course, also possible. We kindly ask non-presenting participants to fill in the registration form by July 14, 2024.
