SASE 26th Annual Conference

July 10-12, 2014 - Northwestern University and the University of Chicago

The Institutional Foundations of Capitalism

Call for Papers and Sessions for Network Q: Asian Capitalisms

In the discussions in social sciences, Asian capitalisms have been under-researched. Theories and concepts of comparative capitalism have still to be applied to Asia and tested within the specific institutional configurations of Asian countries. The very nature of capitalism, its internal diversity, and its patterns of institutional change are facets that are especially fascinating to analyze for Asia. The network focuses on five areas: (a) De- or Re-industrialisation? (b) Innovation, Human Resource Management and Knowledge Creation (c) Beyond Market or State? (d) The future of Asian Capitalism, and (e) Welfare, Inequalities, and Institutional Change. We welcome papers focusing on Asian capitalisms and papers adopting a comparative perspective on other capitalistic societies.

The network is organized by Sebastien Lechevalier (EHESS), Boy Lüthje (Frankfurt Institute of Social Research/East West Center), Cornelia Storz (Frankfurt University) and Tobias ten Brink (Frankfurt University). The network is supported by Fondation France-Japon de l'EHESS (, which will fund the award for the best paper and travel grants. Please find more details at the SASE website. For further information, please contact Tobias ten Brink ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>).
The deadline for submitting papers and session proposals is 20 January 2014.
Best regards,
