ECOPsoc Political Economy Workshop at Rad Ed Week
25 August, 2016
Eastern Avenue, the University of Sydney
Political Economy Society (ECOPsoc)
We're very happy to announce that the Political Economy Society will be contributing to Radical Education Week 2016.
Fitting given Political Economy's radical education origins, and more fitting given the ever-relevant contribution of Political Economy to challenging orthodoxies, axioms and unthinking rigidities.
Three (possibly more!) of ECOPsoc's fine friends will present a short but informative workshop on the meaning, relevancy and applicability of the insights of Poltiical Economy to anyone looking towards a more just society. We'll be exploring how political economy can help us see through the bullshit of mainstream economics and politics, the contributions of dissident traditions in economics (such as feminism, Marxism and environmentalism), and discussing how these insights can help activists in the present.
