The Modern Money Network Humanities Division is pleased to announce that its second conference will be held in spring 2020, from April 24 through April 26, at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. Titled Money on the Left: The Green New Deal Across the Arts & Humanities, the conference invites participation from academics, artists, and activists who engage critically and creatively with the history, present, and future to expand the Green New Deal imaginary in the United States and around the world. 


The meeting will feature a keynote address from Lua Kamál Yuille, Professor of Law and Latin American and Caribbean Studies at University of Kansas, as well as a screening and remote discussion of the film What is Democracy? with filmmaker Astra Taylor. 


Submissions are open for presentation proposals that engage with the aesthetic, cultural, historical, political economic, and/or rhetorical aspects of the Green New Deal movement. We are particularly interested in proposals that approach the Green New Deal from the following perspectives:


·      Democratizing Money

·      Critical Pedagogy

·      Cultural Production 

·      Decolonization

·      Higher Education & Academic Labor

·      Identity & Intersectionality
