Training Workshops in Athens
Workshop on: “Marxist theory of Value and Profit, Financialization and Crisis”
by Prof. Simon Mohun
(Emeritus Professor of Political Economy, Queen Mary University of London)
9-11 December 2014
National Kapodistrian University of Athens
Three lectures and discussion on:
- Value and Price: December 9th
- Value and Profit: December 10th
- Financialization and Crisis: December 11th
All lectures will take place at 15 Evripidou Street (6th floor) and will commence at 18:00.
Theme: The division of Political Economy of the Department of Economics is registering broad interest from students and scholars on issues relating to classical political economy and the possibility of conducting contemporary research originating from this tradition.
In this regard, Prof. Simon Mohun will lecture both on the Marxist theory of value, price and profit and its applications to financialization and crisis. We hope that Professor Mohun’s lectures will help faculty and students identify important aspects of Marxist political economy and trigger academic discussion on the current economic crisis at the same time.
With this in mind we invite you all to attend our Athens workshop. The Workshop is jointly sponsored by the division of Political Economy of the Department of Economics, National Kapodistrian University of Athens, and by the International Initiative for the Promotion of Political Economy (IIPPE).
Registration is free.
