Moral Economy at the Crossroads of History and Social Science: Enhancing the Centre for Political Economy of Labour’s network

Project: Internally funded project

Project Details


Over the past 20 years, a growing body of work by anthropologists, historians and social scientists has revisited and revived the concept of moral economy, conceived by social historian Edward Palmer Thompson and anthropologist James C Scott.

This project is to deliver a one-day workshop on Moral Economy at the Crossroads of History and Social Science at Strathclyde University through the Centre for the Political Economy of Labour (CPEL) in Work, Employment and Organisation (WEO).

In addition to shedding light on cross and interdisciplinary developments on moral economy, the workshop is an important step in developing a stream of research and collaborative research ties between SBS and HASS (especially History) and labour academics and activists from Brazil, Italy, Uzbekistan, Scotland, Ireland and Mauritius.
