The Community Economies Institute announces the 2023 Summer/Winter School

On behalf of the Community Economies Institute (CEI), we invite our PhDs and early career researchers (ECR) to join the Summer/Winter School “Researching Postcapitalist Possibilities”, which will be held from 20 to 29 June 2023.

The “Researching Postcapitalist Possibilities” is a short course that offers PhD students and ECR  the opportunity to explore emerging questions with members of the CEI who have been thinking outside or beyond capitalist relations since the publication of J.K. Gibson-Graham’s “The End of Capitalism (As We Knew It): A Feminist Critique of Political Economy” back in 1996.

This school engages with the foundational concepts and tools that community economies scholars use to envision and enact postcapitalist economies. It explores connections with longer traditions that also value collectivity and interdependence.  The course includes an in-depth reading of core texts, lectures by members of the CEI, seminar discussions and activities around key themes, and workshops on your research.

The 10-day program is run through five nodes:

  • Face-to-face, Centre for Resilient Communities (CRC), West Virginia University; Led by Professor Kevin St Martin (Rutgers University) & Dr Bradley Wilson (CRC)
  • Face-to-face, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU); Led by Assoc. Professor Elizabeth Barron (NTNU) & Professor Katherine Gibson (Uni. of Western Sydney)
  • Face-to-face, Massey University, Aotearoa New Zealand; Led by Assoc. Professor Kelly Dombroski (Massey University)
  • Online, EU-based node, Led by Dr Thomas Smith (Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich)
  • Online, AU-based node, Led by Conjoint Assoc. Professor Jenny Cameron (Uni. of Newcastle, Australia)

Each day, the School starts in Aotearoa New Zealand, and then each node opens as daylight proceeds around the globe. There are shared online activities and exercises, so each node can see what the other nodes are doing.
