ES Final 1 1024x381 Economies and Societies

This new initiative seeks to support critical scholarship on the multiple ways that “economy and society” are being theorized across both geographies and academic disciplines as they relate to India or China, or both. For some, the phrase “economy and society” evokes notions of Weberian charisma, labor valuation, and anthropology on “the gift.” For others, this phrase calls to mind the old formulation of “land, labor and capital.” For another group, what comes to mind is the role of neoliberal globalization and the emerging role of design in the marketing and branding of aesthetics, affect and subjectivity. And for yet another group of scholars, the question turns on the future role of Asian economies. This initiative aims to focus these broad but exciting discourses into a coherent picture of what it means to speak and write about “Economies and Societies” in the 21st century.

Emerging Directions

Over the past year the India China Institute has convened a series of scholars deliberations around the theme of “Economies and Societies.” This included a half-day colloquium this spring which brought together faculty from across The New School, as well as academics from Columbia, NYU and Asia. Building on these deliberations, ICI is also putting together an “Economy and Society Working Group” which will be composed of faculty from across The New School to help develop this research initiative. The students who are selected for a Research Award will also form a vital part of this emerging intellectual community.
