Description

This reading group aims at exploring how the perspective of the postcolonial scholarship could open up new approaches to philosophy of economics/economic methodology. Our endeavor is inspired by the vibrant discussion on the need, possibility and promise of decolonizing economics. And what about decolonizing the way in which philosophy of economics is done? If you are intrigued by this question, please see the programme below and join us! Once a month we will read and meet online to discuss a selection of chapters from the edited volume titled "Postcolonialism Meets Economics" by S. Charusheela and Eiman Zein-Elabdin.

Participants can order a hard copy of the book and be reimbursed by YSI up to 60USD. You just need to fill the below link, and participate minimum in three out of four sessions. Alternatively, you can approach the organizers for getting a pdf copy of single chapters.
