Moral Economy / économie morale / Sozialverträglichkeit
February 12, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Chairperson: Keith Gildart
Other Presenters: Tim Strangleman, Stefan Moitra, Lachlan MacKinnon, Marion Fontaine, Andy Perchard, Pascal Raggi.
Developed originally by labour historian E.P. Thompson in relation to the ways that popular feeling placed informal moral (or political) limits on the price of bread in the 17th and 18th centuries, the concept has been increasingly deployed by deindustrialization scholars in the UK. This workshop will critically examine its evolving place and consider the ways it has emerged, or not emerged, in other countries, as well as the efficacy of other related concepts such as Sozialverträglichkeit.
