Candidate Bios

Ann E. Davis is an Associate Professor of Economics at Marist College and member of URPE since the early 1970s. She has published journal articles on institutional and Marxian approaches to money, gender, and property in the RRPE, Science and Society, Journal of Economic Issues, and Cambridge Journal of Economics, and books published by Palgrave MacMillan (The Evolution of the Property Relation, 2015) and Routledge (Money as a Social Institution 2017) and numerous books chapters. On the steering committee she has contributed to the crisis reader, the URPE history project, the URPE principles project, the website, and to interdisciplinary outreach. In her view, Marx's writings are inherently interdisciplinary, including history, political science, philosophy, and sociology, among others. URPE can continue to enrich the study of Marx by engaging with progressive contributors in these related disciplines. If re-elected to a third term on the Steering Committee, she will continue to engage in outreach to strengthen and deepen the study of Marx's many contributions to the analysis of capitalism and the development of political economic alternatives, and to develop the URPE principles reader under consideration in a widely accessible format.
