Some news of AHE activity on the 'pluralism in economics education' front.
We held a very successful workshop on Saturday 18 October. 21 attended - a very diverse group. All the presentations were good and well-received. The atmosphere was great - lots of wide-ranging and supportive discussion. The sessions were recorded and are downloadable, with the papers, from www.staff.city.ac.uk/andy.denis/pluralism.htm .
The deadline for the special issue of IREE is coming soon - Friday, 28 November 2008. The call for papers is at http://staff.city.ac.uk/andy.denis/IREE_pluralism.pdf .
CHUDE did not attend the workshop to defend their corner, but they have invited Alan and me to address the next full meeting of CHUDE, this coming weekend, on the issue.
And finally, CHUDE have also invited us to submit a proposal for a special session on pluralism in economics education at the RES conference, April 2009, University of Surrey. The deadline has actually passed, but they will ask for our submission to be considered on merit, not rejected for lateness. We need to submit our proposal by the end of next week. If you would like to contribute, send me an abstract by Thursday evening, 6 November.
All the best
