Call for papers

Post Keynesian Economics Study Group (PKSG) is organizing its 7th Annual PhD Student Conference on 28 May 2015, 9am-7pm. The presenters will be PhD students, who are currently enrolled in a PhD programme, and are working on topics relevant to Post Keynesian economics and political economy. The aim is to give an opportunity to the students to present a draft paper out of their PhD dissertation, and receive feedback from the senior researchers as well as other students. 

Please submit an abstract of a paper (about 250 words) and a brief cover letter describing your research interests, dissertation, and the name and email address of a referee (who could be your PhD supervisor) by email to The deadline for submissions is 2 March 2015. Applicants will be informed by end-March.

The PhD Student Conference will be followed on 29 May 2015 by the Annual Workshop of the PKSG. All students are welcome to attend. See for the previous Workshops. A further attraction is the lectures by Dr. Maria Nikolaidi and Dr. Yiannis Dafermos of the PKSG on “Post-Keynesian stock-flow consistent modelling: theory and methodology” and “Building a stock-flow consistent model in practice (lab session)” as part of an advanced PhD level series of lectures at the University of Greenwich on 27 May.

Post Keynesian Economics Study Group (PKSG)

PKSG was founded in 1988 by Philip Arestis and Victoria Chick with the support of the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The purpose of the Study Group is to encourage collaboration among scholars and students of Post Keynesian economics, defined broadly as a theoretical approach that draws upon the work of Keynes, Kalecki, Joan Robinson, Kaldor, Kahn and Sraffa. This approach is distinguished by the central role of the principle of effective demand (that demand matters in the long run) and an insistence that history, social structure and institutional practice be embodied in its theory and reflected in its policy recommendations. These aims broadly correspond to those of Cambridge Journal of Economics, Journal of Post Keynesian Economics, Review of Political Economy and Intervention: European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies.
