URPE invites doctoral candidates in any discipline with an approved dissertation proposal in the area of radical political economics to apply for the URPE Dissertation Fellowship. URPE promotes a new interdisciplinary approach to political economy which includes also relevant themes from political science, sociology and social psychology. It develops new courses and research areas which reflect the urgencies of the day and a new value premise. Such areas include the economics of the ghetto, poverty, imperialism, interest groups, and the military-industry complex. Political economics should be sensitive to the needs of the social movements of our day, and have more group research, with an approach that links all issues to a broad framework of analysis.
Doctoral candidates in any discipline with an approved dissertation proposal in the area of radical political economics are eligible to apply for the URPE Dissertation Fellowship.
The URPE dissertation fellow will receive $6500 to support their dissertation writing during the 2021-2022 academic year.
