RECAST– Review of Capitalism Studies – is a peer-reviewed and student-run journal which encourages the participation of young scholars in the current debates in Political Economy. RECAST seeks to promote pluralism and intersectionality, providing an open access to scholarly articles that critically study the past, present and future of capitalism as a socio-political and economic system [in constant evolution]. The objective of this general review is to enlarge economic studies on capitalism by including approaches from social, political and ecological studies. We publish biannually and we also provide a blog with collaborations from young and senior scholars which will be updated weekly to engage in the current debates in Political Economy.
AIM & SCOPE
The main objective of RECAST is to include students and young scholars in the debates on capitalism. To fully understand this system, the young generation of researchers needs to study it in depth by combining different approaches. On top of this wide approach on the subject, this is a unique opportunity to bring future researchers and policy makers together, to share knowledge, help other and debate. To achieve this goal, RECAST can be divided in two categories :
- The biannual publication contains six to eight articles that study capitalism through various approaches, such as Théorie de la Régulation, economic history, and so on. Each article is reviewed by one student and one professor, and therefore stimulates the critical reflexion of young scholars, as well as their experience with Research.
- The blog constitutes a more informal platform, where people can share resources regarding the Academia, Economic studies or discussions from other fields. The idea of this page is to allow people to engage together while rising the knowledges and critical views of participants.
