Moral economies are usually associated with peasant life in the global south or an agrarian past in the global north. Our goal with the Moral Economies Research Network is to begin an interdisciplinary conversation across the university that redefines what moral economies mean in the 21st century across a range of cultural contexts, from consumer capitalist economies of the global north to post-socialist countries and developing countries in the global south. We hope to bring together scholars working on a wide range of empirical contexts, theoretical issues and conceptual problems who share an interest in moral dimension of economic life from any disciplinary background. We welcome normative approaches that advocate change in policies, governance and institutions as well as perspectives that explore implicit and explicit moral concerns in economic life.
