Next up: “Doing Economies Differently” I am pretty excited about this next curated bookshelf and intimate public conversation.

Audio from this event can be found here.
Professor Bronwen Morgan’s research focuses on the transformations of the regulatory state in both national-comparative and transnational contexts, and more recently in the interaction between regulation and rights, especially in the context of social activism and claims for social and economic human rights. Bronwen also attended the Platform Cooperativism in NYC last year and will share her insights on this gathering. Read her review here: http://www.stirtoaction.com/blog/a-thousand-flowers-blooming
Dr Stephen Healy is a senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Culture and Society, University of Western Sydney and a recent arrival to Australia. He has a Doctorate in Geography and his research focuses on community-based approaches to sustainable economic development. He has a passionate interest in how self-conception, desire and fantasy shape everyday understanding and practice of social, economic and ecological relations. He is currently involved in research with US-based colleagues exploring the Solidarity Economy in the United States, supported by the National Science Foundation, and an international research effort focused on how socially just sustainable economic practices can diffuse across scale and context.
