Workshop “V. Chick and G.C. Harcourt. Lives lived against the stream” (London, 12-13 May 2023)
V. Chick and G.C. Harcourt. Lives lived against the stream
12 May 2023 – 13 May 2023
An event organised by The Open Political Economy Group, IKD, The Open University and the History and Methodology of Economic Thought Research Group, Goldsmiths.
This event celebrates the many and diverse contributions that Victoria Chick (1936-2023) and Geoffrey Colin Harcourt (1931-2021) brought to the economics community over their lives. They were both central pillars of the Keynesian and later Post-Keynesian school of thought from its very beginning, and their contributions defined the scope and outlook that this approach to economics came to represent. This two-day event intends to honor their work and many years of service to the community.
Organised by Andrew Trigg and Constantinos Repapis. Funding provided by the Independent Social Research Foundation.
All sessions can be participated online. Please email Constantinos Repapis (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to receive the relevant MS teams link.
