Are we all pluralists now?

We are pleased to have a talk by our esteemed colleague Dr. Danielle Guizzo Archela who will present on the topic: Are we all pluralists now?Revisiting pluralism ten years after the global financial crisis (GFC).

Abstract

The tenth anniversary of the GFC represents an appropriate moment to revise and assess the many calls from students and academics for more pluralism in economics.

Indeed, the issue of pluralism still raises a debate of what it means in practical terms for the economics profession regarding theory, method and practice.

This presentation explores four principles behind the necessity of adopting structured pluralism in economics
and addresses some examples of how pluralism can be applied into practice.

The seminar also invites attendees to discuss the key challenges and opportunities for ensuring a pluralist approach
that tackles the current democratic deficit in teaching and research.
