Toward a Just Political Economy
With this symposium, we present many divergent views of how to develop a just political economy. Rather than a set of policy proposals, this collection provides a holistic vision of political economy through a diversity of views that overlap, conflict, and take radically different approaches to the theme. One aspect of this will be methodological, with different historical, theological, and financial approaches to economic problems. We also aim to highlight the wisdom of religious traditions as applied to questions of economics and justice—a source that is insufficiently consulted in political economy.
We want to keep individual essay topics a secret for a little while longer, but rest assured they are all fascinating approaches to the question of justice in political economy. Our contributors include:
William Lombardo • Ahmed Al-Dakhil • Jason Peirce • Jonathan Culbreath • Elijah del Medigo • Joe Barnas • Chase Padusniak • Leo Thuman • Imane Boujnane • Elena Attfield • Ryan Peterson
We are still working on finalizing design and copy editing, but we have grown so excited by this project over the last few months that we needed to share it! We are opening up a limited number of preorders for the print edition of the symposium. In addition to the print copy, each preorder will receive a digital copy on the day of publication, allow special access to panel discussion with contributors, and will help support our team of independent writers.
This symposium is a significant and unique development in the framing and substance of contemporary discourse. Join Athwart in our mission: “Toward a New Theory of Culture and Society.”
Disclaimer: The substance, form, and other details of the symposium may change before publication. We are currently working on finalizing copy edits, design, and other layout concerns. We will begin printing all preorders within 30 days; however, there may be a delay in our printer fulfilling our order or in shipping. As such, you may not have your copy in hand within 30 days—but rest assured, it will be on its way to you! Because of this, everyone who preorders a copy of the symposium will also receive a PDF edition when we send it off to the printers. In the spirit of just economics, we humbly request that you do not disseminate digital copies of our symposium. All preorders are non-refundable. Shipping and taxes are excluded from list price.
