Introduction to the Symposium on Post-Keynesian and Feminist Economics
Cambridge Journal of Economics , Volume 34 - Issue 6 p. 1105- 1107
The papers in this symposium treat feminist economics as a source of foundational insight and critique. They extend a dialogue between the feminist and post-Keynesian literatures on questions of theory, method, epistemology and ontology. Dialogues across literatures raise questions of delimitation. Efforts to axiomatise post- Keynesianism are contentious. Feminist economics is even harder to typify given the range of feminist theories and variety of relevant economics paradigms. These questions are discussed in Siobhan Austen and Therese Jefferson’s paper for this symposium. To borrow a term from Hamouda and Harcourt (1988), we approach both post-Keynesianism and feminism as capacious portmanteaus. We look for particular, well-formed ideas within each large tradition that might be helpful in the other.
