Call for papers Deadline: January 31, 2023
Details about submission requirements can be found here.
Two parallel workshop tracks
Track A: To explore the potential shared anthropological ground between economics and theology, inviting contributions from disciplines including theology, anthropology, philosophy (e.g. personalism), and history of ideas.
Track B: Specifically designed for scholars trained in the (formal) language of economic models. Asking how insights from other disciplines with a richer understanding of anthropology can feed in ideas to economists, whilst allowing them to treat those insights within the ‘epistemic culture’ of economics, based to a considerable degree on mathematical modeling.
