Organize a Writing Workshop

A new space for collective learning

Exploring Economics is much more than just a website - with our writing workshops we build up an “offline” learning community for students, researchers, and young lecturers. In the course of a 2-3-day workshop, about 15 participants will discuss and reflect on different topics and at the same time create new learning material for Exploring Economics!

 

 What is a writing workshop?

The goal of a writing workshop is to encourage an active examination of a topic or a perspective of pluralist economics. In the course of a 2-3-day workshop, about 15 participants (students and young scholars) will discuss and reflect different topics. Their aim is to create new material that, after going through an academic review process, will be published on Exploring Economics. It is possible to involve international online participants.

 

  What does Exploring Economics provide?

  • Know-how and templates from previous writing workshops regarding the program, preparation and follow-up processes
  • Quality guide for essays and other material
  • Assistance with fundraising and the compilation of necessary documents
  • Support with the search for academic reviewers and coordination of the review process
  • Support with the search for native speakers who will proofread the new material
  • The technical infrastructure for online registration form
  • Advertisement for the event across communication channels of Exploring Economics and the Network for Pluralist Economics
  • Support in case of questions and problems

 

If you want to apply for organisational and financial support for a writing workshop, send us a title, short description (~500 words) and suggest a venue, members of an organizing committee (at least two people including you) and one possible academic patron or academic partner institution.

Organize a Scientific Workshop

Cutting edge research in pluralist economics

Today's research will be tomorrow's teaching contents - therefore we are developing a new format of scientific workshops that is primarily directed at PhDs students and lecturers. Our scientific workshops focus on various issues related to pluralist research and new economic thinking and provides a space for networking and discussion.

 

 What is a scientific workshop?

The goal of a scientific workshop is to provide a space for the presenation of research results and/or networking among PhD's and lecturers. The format of a scientific workshop is more variable than the writing workshops described above. A scientific workshop can run for 1-3 days and provide space for 5-45 participants, thus ranging from a meeting of a small research group towards a larger scientific conference. The focus of a scientific workshop can vary considerably as well. You may focus on a clear cut research issue or rather focus on the pluralist exchange of ideas and networking among upcoming researchers and scholars. Unlike with writing workshops, we do not expect essays or dossiers to be produced as a result. However, the collaborative creation of syllabi, teaching packages or other materials that teachers can reuse is highly appreciated.
