What role can the humanities and social sciences play in making other worlds possible? What capacities do we have as scholars to shape the world? What ethical responsibilities and earthly cares come with this work? These are difficult questions. The answers we might give benefit from collective thinking and learning. Researching Post-Capitalist Possibilities is a short course that offers PhD students and early career researchers (ECRS) the opportunity to explore these questions with scholar members of the Community Economies Collective who have been thinking outside or beyond capitalist relations since the publication of J.K. Gibson-Graham’s The End of Capitalism (As We Knew It): A Feminist Critique of Political Economy in 1996. Course Overview: The first three days of the course will explore the conceptual foundations of feminist post-capitalist thinking. The second three days will focus on how to imagine and enact post-capitalist possibilities through research practice. Prior reading preparation will be required.

How to Apply: Applications are open to currently enrolled PhD candidates and early career researchers (no more than 5 years out of PhD).
