On July 7th 2018, we are hosting a day conference which will bring together a range of thinkers from a variety of disciplines to discuss how we can collaboratively Mobilise  New Economic Futures. Alongside cultural, sociological and anthropological perspectives, we hope a broader narrative will emerge that embeds the structural drivers of the economy on a more critical ground.

New School Economics (NSE) is a student society at Goldsmiths, University of London associated with PERC and Rethinking Economics. Over the past year we have built a platform to critique the current system, by hosting a number of events and engaging with a community of multi-disciplinary (re)thinkers.

We think the study of ‘the economy’ cannot be detached from the study of politics, ideas, and history. Therefore, any attempt to Mobilise New Economic Futures, requires rethinking the ‘economy’ from multiple perspectives. Our previous event, Mental Health and Neoliberalism, attempted to draw connections between economic stagnation, austerity policies since the financial crash, and the mental health crisis that has become increasingly prevelant.

Further panel details will be available in the coming weeks.
