IIPPE Training Workshop (November 2014, London)
Following its very successful Training Workshop in Naples in September, the International Initiative for the Promotion of Political Economy (IIPPE) has decided to repeat the Workshop on Wednesday 5 November 2014 at the Vernon Square campus of the School of Oriental and African Studies in London from 9.45am to 5pm.
The morning session will be given by Marco Veronese Passarella, and will focus on the development of the labour theory of value through Smith, Ricardo and Marx, including a summary of Marx’s account of the formation of prices of production. The afternoon session will be led by Simon Mohun, and will continue the morning session with a focus on value and price as they have been theorised in this tradition since the 1970s.
As ever, we seek an audience of undergraduate and postgraduate students, junior academics and activists, who have a particular interest in acquainting themselves both with some of the basic principles of Marxian political economy and its controversies, and with the relevance of Marxian political economy to the contemporary world.
IIPPE will provide tea and coffee during am and pm breaks, together with a sandwich lunch. We ask all participants to contribute £5 at registration on the day to help defray costs of this provision.
If you wish to apply to attend this workshop, please send a note to that effect, before Tuesday 28 October with your name and occupation/affiliation, to Serap Saritas <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
