As usual, the 2022 conference will be preceded by a one-day IIPPE Training Workshop, titled “Workshop on Marxist Political Economy”, which will be on 6 September 2022, from 9:00 to 15:30 Central European Summer Time. Everyone is more than welcome to join!

For organisational purposes, it would be great if you could express your intent to participate by clicking on the button below:

The pre-conference training workshop is a chance to go into some theoretical issues about Marxist Political Economy in more depth, and in a format with more discussion, than is possible during the presentation of papers at the conference. There will be two 3-hour sessions. The first will be an overview of the coherent nature of Marx and Engels’ approach to understanding the social economic activity carried out under capitalism. The second workshop will build off of that, using the approach of Marx and Engels to look at a specific case, the current ongoing economic reforms in Cuba and discuss if they are consistent with their goal of transcending capitalism and building socialism.

The workshops will be in the Distretto Navile building (the same building the main conference will take place the following days). Here is the schedule and workshop coordinators:

Tuesday, 6 September 2022

9:30 – 12:30. Session I. Introduction to Marxist Political Economy. Alfredo Saad Filho

14:00 – 17:00. Session II. Cuba’s Reformed Process of Building Socialism from a Marxist Political Economy Perspective. Al Campbell

For any further details and/or questions, please contact Al Campbell (al@economics.utah.edu).

We are looking forward to an outstanding in-person conference in Bologna!
