The Association for Evolutionary Economics (AFEE) South American Conference is a 3-day event hosted by the Federal University of Paraná (Curitiba, Brazil), taking place on May 22nd-24th 2024, with a combination of workshops (22nd May) and paper presentations (23rd-24th May).

The conference theme is “Understanding economic challenges from original institutionalist and post Keynesian perspectives”. We encourage submission of papers discussing: (1) the use of Original institutionalism and post Keynesianism as lenses to understand economic and social issues, notably within Latin America, 2) potential cross-fertilizations between original institutionalism and post Keynesianism from a historical and/or methodological view, and (3) diversifying original institutionalism and post Keynesianism from the perspective of identity, gender, and location.

The conference will be free of charge. Young scholars selected for the workshop may receive funding (full or partial) to support their travel costs to attend.

Academics who do not qualify as early-career researchers (5 years after their PhD completion) are also welcomed and encouraged to submit, but will not be eligible for funding.

Application Process
Submission of extended abstracts (maximum of 1,000 words) will be open until January 31st (extended deadline) via the link
