The twelfth History of Recent Economics Conference (HISRECO) will be held at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) of the University of Cergy-Pontoise on October 12-13, 2018. Since 2007 HISRECO has brought together researchers from various backgrounds to study the history of economics in the postwar period. It is the organizers’ belief that this period, during which economics became one of the dominant discourses in contemporary society, is worth studying for its own sake.
A provisional schedule for the upcoming conference, Money on the Left: Word, Image, Praxis, is now available through the Modern Money Network Humanities Division's expanding website: http://modern-money-humanities.webflow.io/schedule.

Waste, whether municipal, hazardous, biomedical, or contaminate, is receiving increasing attention both academically and politically.
