As part of the ESRC Seminar Series ‘From Recovery to Discovery’ the #mypoliticaleconomy initiative creates a space for interdisciplinary dialogue on the teaching of political economy.
Political Economy exists in many iterations as global or international political economy, cultural economy and/or economic geography; it is both a form of inquiry and a field of research that cross-cuts different social science disciplines: heterodox economics, social anthropology and sociology, politics and international relations, human geography as well as business studies. In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis much of the advanced industrialised world is griped by persistent economic malaise punctuated only by ever more severe crises. Now is the time to start building a renewed approach to teaching political economy. Building on from high profile critiques of how neoclassical economics is taught, especially in the UK but reaching across the globe, it is important that political economy does not remain complacent we need to galvanize this energy to begin building a contemporary and innovative approaches to teaching political economy that reflects realities of present-day capitalism.
This is digital repository of teaching materials, reflections and recommendations from those teaching political economy
