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 www.alternateroutes.ca<https://alternateroutes.us15.list-manage.com/track/click?u=c60888f2b6ed91110708d3227&id=9bc95225b8&e=4dee3b990b>.Submissions are due no later than December 31st, 2018.
