*Alternatives to Capitalism RN Call for Papers*
The recent and yet unresolved Great Recession has revealed just how
unjust, inefficient and unsustainable contemporary capitalism has
become. This has revitalized public and academic debate about the future
of capitalism and the urgent need to envision and enact alternatives
that can help tackle the multiple crises that societies are currently
facing: high and rising inequality of income and power, eroding
democracy, human-induced climate change and environmental destruction.
As income and wealth inequality have intensified within capitalist
societies, people’s sense of voice or control over longstanding societal
institutions has also diminished. In response, many people across the
globe have joined together to create new futures through alternative
systems, institutions, organizations and other collectives, and
relationships. Our network encourages research and scholarship on such
collective efforts to create more transformative, egalitarian,
horizontal or non-hierarchical practices, relations, social movements,
groups, organizations, and societies. Moreover, our network provides an
engaging forum for discussing and envisioning alternatives.
The broad aim of this research network is to advance the international,
comparative and interdisciplinary study of alternatives to capitalism
and its associated institutions. More specifically, the research network
has three goals:
1) To *bridge the disparate interpretative frameworks *that exist by
engaging in a theoretical systematization of the literature;
2) To *map existing alternatives *embedded within various
socio-economic and geographic contexts;
3) To *encourage the use of innovative research methods *that can
provide new insights and reach broader audiences.
Contributors are invited to investigate and analyse the practices,
strategies and discourses being used by different social groups to
enhance and exercise social power rooted in the voluntary association of
people and based on the capacity to engage in collective action of
*Topics of interest***include, but are not limited to: cooperatives
(worker/producer/consumer) and cooperativism; political and ethical
consumerism; eco-villages and sustainable communities; community and
practice-based initiatives; the future of work; radical lifestyles;
utopias and alternative futures; prefigurative initiatives and
prefigurative politics; direct democracy and municipalism; commons and
commoning; alternative forms of organisation and governance;
anti-capitalist trade unions and political parties; transformative
social innovation; alternative media and other forms of alternative
social reproduction. We are particularly interested in the ways in which
the State and the market interact with these alternatives through
mechanisms of facilitation, co-optation, or repression.
We look forward to meeting you in New York City in June 2019!
With our best wishes for 2019,
Lara, Torsten, Katherine and Joyce
