We encourage applications from scholars working on the following themes: financialization, work and social reproduction, post-capitalism, sustainability, racial capitalism, emergent infrastructures of capitalism, precarity and informality, ecology and political economy, global perspectives on inequality, and contemporary or historical perspectives on global reconfigurations of labor, trade, and finance.
