The annual Economy and Society Summer School will take place from 8th – 12th May 2017 in Blackwater Castle Co. Cork.
Addressing the multiple and complex intersections of the economy and society, the week long doctoral symposium brings together scholars from many disciplines to discuss ‘economic’ themes such as; the market, the state, production, consumption, value, money, work, commodities, poverty and inequality.
The summer school is offered to post-graduate students in anthropology, economics, geography, history, organisation studies, management and marketing, politics and sociology. It is specifically tailored to the academic development of doctoral candidates
The Economy & Society summer school is hosted by the Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) and University College Cork (UCC) research group Centre for the Study of the Moral Foundations of Economy & Society and has been developed under the auspices of the President of Ireland’s Ethics Initiative, an attempt to address recent and on-going crises, to understand and criticise the thinking which put these processes in train.
