Dear Colleagues,

Alternate Routes: A Journal of Critical Social Research and the University of 
Turin, in conjunction with the ILO-sponsored gallery exhibition Behind the 
Indian Boom: Invisible India, invites submissions for our latest conference and 
special issue: The Globalization Project: Falling Behind or Failing Forward?

 A retrospective with future implications: 2019 marks eleven years since the 
Great Recession and bank bailouts began, ten years since the Keynesian stimulus 
comeback, nine years since the recent austerity push, three years since the 
Paris Agreement, twenty years since the launch of the Euro, thirty years since 
the Canada-US Free Trade Agreement came into effect, and more than forty years 
since the ‘other’ 9/11 and onset of monetarism. How might we evaluate the 
longue duree of neoliberalism, and what might more recent trends like rightwing 
populism and illiberalism mean for the future of neoliberalism and the 
globalization project? How are labour and other social movements responding? 
What role, if any, for social democracy? And what to make of twenty-first 
century socialism?

Alternate Routes invites panel and paper proposals for its upcoming annual 
conference that probe the dialectic of continuity and change. To encourage 
broad intellectual engagement and debate, we are seeking paper and panel 
proposals on a wide range of topics relating to these trends, including but not 
limited to:

• Nationalism and Alt-Populisms
• The Neoliberal State and Globalism
• Labour Market Restructuring, Precarious work and Un(der)employment
• International Relations and Diplomacy
• Language, Literature and Art
• Uneven and Contradictory Regional Development
• Transnational Institutions and Global Governance
• Racialization and Gender Inequalities
• Imperialism and Colonialism
• International Trade and Investment
• Climate Change and ‘Green’ Capitalism
• Human Rights and Global Equity

For a full description and to submit your proposal, please visit<>.Submissions
 are due no later than December 31st, 2018. Of course, should you have any 
other questions, please do not hesitate to let us know.

Best wishes,
Carlo Fanelli (on behalf of the conference organizing committee)
