(See also as an URPE activity the URPE PUBLICATIONS (in navigation bar above): The Review of Radical Political Economy and the Newsletter)

URPE at the ASSAs

Every January URPE sponsors a series of panels at the Allied Social Sciences Associations (ASSAs) meetings to provide a venue for the presentation and discussion of current research in heterodox economics.

URPE at the Easterns

URPE sponsors a series of panels at the Eastern Economic Association (EEA) meetings to provide a venue for the presentation and discussion of current research in heterodox economics.

URPE at Left Forum

The Left Forum (formerly Socialist Scholars Conference) has taken place yearly in New York for decades. It is a venue for the presentation and discussion of both theoretical and activist work, and of course much work that is both. URPE has built URPE sponsored panels (or co-sponsored panels with other groups) at the Left Forum for many years, in addition to many URPE members participating in other panels there.

URPE at the SEA

URPE sponsors a series of panels at the Southern Economic Association (SEA) meetings to provide a venue for the presentation and discussion of current research in heterodox economics.

URPE Blog

URPE has a Blog on WordPress for URPE members who wish to blog, share ideas, make announcements, discuss matters, ask questions, or plain think aloud. As usual, this paragraph heading "URPE Blog" takes you directly to it. Instructions indicate how to join the blog as author or reader, and introduces new users not familiar with blogs to using it.
     Since 1968, URPE has offered activists, students, and academics a broad array of tools to critically examine and challenge the economic and political status quo. URPE’s Blog Hub is intended as another such tool for today's world.

URPE on Facebook

URPE members who are members of Facebook can join the URPE Facebook Group (if not a member of Facebook, you need to first join Facebook). You can see what other URPE members are doing, and communicate with them, thus facilitating cooperation.

URPE Listserve

The URPE Listserve is a moderated, low-volume, announcement-only list, not an on-line discussion group. It is for use by URPE members to keep ourselves informed of the work and activities of other members, and political economy events that would be of interest to URPE Members.

URPE YouTube Channel

URPE posts videos of lectures and presentations made by URPE members, as well as oral history interviews,  to our YouTube channel.

URPE Dissertation Fellowship

In 2016, URPE was able to offer our first annual Dissertation Fellowship award of $5,000 to a PhD candidate whose work is helping to promote and advance radical political economy. Each year, URPE will select the recipient from a pool of applicants whose work is related to radical political economy. We look forward to the success of this fellowship moving forward.

URPE Conferences

Occasionally, URPE will host our own conferences with sessions organized by our membership.  The next URPE conference is the URPE Brooklyn Conference to be held April 8, 2017 at St. Francis College, Brooklyn.  See details here.
