This has two advantages: First, it reduces copy-paste work to dust for efficiency. Second, it gives people, who want to submit something to the Newsletter more control with regard to what is actually published for emancipation. This could even end up in a Pareto-improvement and we all know how hard this is to achieve!
However, with all this technical gadgetry there also comes the cost of automatization: the danger of carelessness. In this context this issue of the Newsletter is not only a regular issue, but also some kind of "beta-test" for our new editing system. If you find a series of errors or anything disturbing - send us an email, we are hungry for feedback.
Finally, as in any first issue of anything we have to say "thank you" to a whole lot of people: To those who started all the work Fred, Ted, Tae-Hee and to all other people who contributed throughout all these years. I, personally, have to thank the Austrian Chamber of Labour, most notably the head of its division for economics and statistics, Markus Marterbauer, for providing modest, but decisive financial support for this project. I also have to thank Herwig Hochleitner for providing state-of-the-art IT-Services and my editorial assistant Florian Springholz, without whom I would be completely lost.
Naturally, I have to thank my wife for not killing me or worse: leaving me when I explained to her what I have agreed to take care for ;-. There already it seemed that philosophy had become a thankless and wearying task. It involves interpreting a world constantly outrunning each and every analysis of it; a world stubbornly concealing itself behind a series of political-economic abstractions; a world revealing itself only as constant and persistent transformation; a world demanding investigation while all the same eluding analysis.
Neither today, nor during no more than a few short moments within the last ten years, has this felt much different. How can this go on?

The result is that some academics are regularly succumbing to a cynical disengagement from the world around them. This is perhaps not surprising, considering not only the fate of academic philosophy but also the political economy of academic labour — a state of affairs exacerbated over the last decade by the intensified rule of precarity and austerity in the academy. The university is marked by finance not through its abundance but through the limits imposed by neo-liberal governance and audit. To this conditioning the academy is meant to respond energetically not with revolutionary zeal, but with entrepreneurial spirit and a certain business pragmatics — a different constellation of philosophy and political economy.
Here the business school has replaced much of the academy and come to financially support most other academic activities. The university goes on — as business incubator.
This demand for investment out of nothing might seem a more wearying predicament than the one diagnosed by Levin. Yet the contemporary university not only produces cynicism and startups — it also produces critiques of cynical reason and students who take to the streets guarded with nothing but the titles of their favourite philosophical works. And there they meet with a wider scene where weariness is equally pervasive yet persistent.
Capitalism itself seems weary in that its ideas and institutions have exhausted themselves even as it staggers on, like a zombie.

Through financialisation capital has learnt to draw on the social wealth that it hardly bothers to help produce. It is racist but relies on migrant labour; it devours culture but does not want to fund it; it feasts on nature but does not nurture it. Capital goes on. It accumulates because it must. But in this going-on it festers exhaustion and crisis. Or rather: the life that produces social wealth recognises this exhaustion as crisis and turns it into a crisis of capital.
Those working and studying in the undercommons of the university recognise that the crisis of the university is tied to a crisis of natural and social reproduction. This crisis manifests itself not only in depression as a weariness of the self or the difficulty of recognising friendship in a hyper-connected world. It also manifests itself in a fear of the future, a worry about the world our children and grandchildren will live in, and for many an insecurity about where our next meal will come from.
Appraising and Exploring Organisations (Routledge Revivals) (Volume 2)
No wonder we are so anxious! And yet Web: here blog: here twitter: here. Final deadline for submitting abstracts: 1st November ; abstracts to cppeconference gmail. The CPPE is both a product of structurally produced predicament of weariness, as well as a deliberately collective refusal to succumb to its false consolations. That such a Centre should exist within a School of Management stands testament to the relative success of the neo-liberal reformulation of the contemporary university. That such a Centre should continue to groan under the weight of its apparently contradictory location, without collapsing, stands testament to the resolve of its members and, just as important, its guest-contributors and collaborators.
The CPPE is 10 years old this year. Potential contributions papers, panels, performances to the proceedings should be guided by the themes alluded to in the above. Class, Race and Corporate Power is an open-access, online academic journal examining the politics of corporate power.
This includes an analysis of capital, labor, and race relations within nation-states and the global economy.

We encourage contributions that explore these issues within holistic frameworks that borrow from a range of scholarly disciplines. To contribute, click here to visit the journal website. Then click on the "submit article" link on the right-hand margin of the journal homepage. We will be publishing three issues each year, and are now accepting contributions for the current special issue as well as next year's issues, focused on themes of corporate power March , labor and social justice movements July , and race and class November We want broad conceptualizations of these themes that engage important theoretical debates, as opposed to narrow case studies.
Our "Articles" section includes contributions that go through a double-blind peer review process with a month turnaround for reviews. We recommend submission of page articles for this section, although alternative lengths are also acceptable see the submission guidelines link at our journal homepage for more details. In addition, we encourage shorter contributions to our non-peer-reviewed sections titled "The Politics of Culture" review essays and "Perspectives" short opinion pieces. The editor-in-chief reviews these submissions and determines if they are suitable for publication.
If you have questions, please review our journal home page for more information. The book is planned to be out in the second half of and will be published by Peter Lang, International Academic Publishers. SEE has a population of 50 million, yet is broken up into many countries at different levels of development and at different stages of integration within the European Union or even European Monetary Union. With an exception of Slovenia, asset share of foreign owned banks has been very high.

Policy outcomes based on austerity that accompanied the crisis in these countries have had a hugely negative outcomes for the SEE countries but have also, to paraphrase J. Becker, served as 'inspiration' for neoliberal prescription in the rest of the EU. Heterodox economic contributions such as those of post Keynesian and institutional economics character are particularly welcome, but perspectives from other schools of economic thought will also be considered for publication.
The papers that engage in comparative political economy and analyses of longer time periods that can draw on historical background on financialisation and financial crises have an advantage. The contributions should be in the region of — words, and will be blind reviewed by external referees.
All contributions should be original, i. The authors may be asked to contribute to the costs of publishing the book. Extended abstracts of up to words should be sent by 30 November, to both editors at vcvijanovic efzg. The authors will be notified by 15 December whether their paper is accepted for review. Full papers should be sent by 28 February via email to the editors. After the papers have been peer-reviewed by 15 April the authors will be notified of final acceptance of their papers.

Discussions of internal consistency, extensions between the integrated framework of choice, and quantitative analytical technique are highly encouraged. Can integrated methodologies reach beyond case studies and heterodox schools of thought? Perspectives on the question of broader applicability of integrated approaches in the field of economics are highly encouraged. Are these integrated approaches largely limited to heterodox thought?
Are there certain sub-fields within economics that find a natural congruence with holistic frameworks? What are some of the critical questions that need to be asked of holistic methodologies, frameworks, and approaches in the interest of broader applicability within and beyond heterodox economics? The SFM-A Hayden and IAD Ostrom are two examples of integrated approaches to analysis and policy making that help delineate, distill, and analyze complex socio economic issues in a holistic, non-reductionist framework.
These frameworks are designed to help researchers understand institutions and evolutionary socio-economic processes and allow for embedding the complexity of social interaction into the analysis. The SFM-A Hayden is designed to identify cultural values, social beliefs, institutions, technology, prevailing attitudes, and environmental context of any socio economic process Natarajan, Fullwiler, and Elsner While there are divergences between the SFM-A and IAD, there is a convergence in their goal; both seek to retain institutional complexity and thus expand the informational base of analyzing any socio-economic process.
Both methodologies seek to identify institutional rules and reasons for individual and social behaviors. The Global Labour University is pleased to announce a call for papers for its ninth annual conference, which will be held in Berlin in May Increasing economic inequality is one of the key features of the radical globalisation project that emerged in the s, generating levels of inequality incompatible with social inclusion, equal oppor- tunities and fairness. In a situation characterised by a severe financial and economic crisis, rising un- employment and reduced social expenditure are deepening the social divide in many societies.
The Great Recession across the global north in , followed by a very weak recovery and in some cases a double dip , has hit the most disadvantaged social groups affect hardest. At the global level, GDP growth has also slowed down. Under these circumstances, opportunities for individual and social development are under threat, social cohesion is eroding, and the quality of democracy is deteriorating.
Under the pressure of international institutions and national elites, governments are executing austerity policies despite public protest and growing disillusionment of the populations with their political representatives and democracy. Against this backdrop, the conference of the GLU focuses on the causes and effects of increases in economic inequality — and what can be done to prevent or reverse them.
We encourage the submis- sion of papers mapping the extent and dynamics of inequality, analysing its causes and effects, concep- tualising countermeasures, outlining implementation strategies, and identifying the stakeholders to be involved. We are keen to hear about both inequalities within and among national states, and are espe- cially interested in papers using an interdisciplinary approach.
In line with the international character of the GLU, we aim to collect ideas and perspectives from countries across the globe. Which labour market institutions have been successful in reducing wage dispersion, low pay, precarious employment, informali- ty, gender differences and qualification mismatch? Can labour market institutions challenge the de-linkage of wages and productivity growth? Concerning the international level, we encourage the submission of papers that compare labour market institutions across different countries or analyse the effects on labour markets of international labour standards, the international trade regime and unregulated international capital flows including foreign direct investment.
What is the role of high bonus payments, the competitive pressures created by out- sourcing, and the increasing pressure on agents in the financial system to increase returns? Can public banks, capital controls and reforms of the domestic financial system contribute to stabi- lising economic development and changing income distribution? How is outsourcing and the emergence of transnational chains of production linked to the rise in precarious work?
How do the purchasing and subcontracting practices of multinationals impact on wages? In how far does their lobbying of governments contribute to repressing wage growth and restricting rights to collective bargaining? What are the effects of existence of multinational corporations on re- gimes of corporate taxation?
