X COLÓQUIO BRASILEIRO EM ECONOMIA POLÍTICA DOS SISTEMAS-MUNDO

Florianópolis, 10 e 11 de outubro de 2016

O Brasil na Economia‐Mundo Capitalista: passado, presente e perspectivas no século XXI

Em sua 10ª edição, o Colóquio Brasileiro em Economia Política dos Sistemas‐Mundo convida à reflexão sobre as relações entre o Brasil e a Economia‐Mundo. Esse esforço poderia partir da seguinte afirmação de Anibal Quijano e Immanuel Wallerstein: “As Américas não foram incorporadas a uma economia‐mundo capitalista pré‐existente. Sem as Américas não poderia ter existido uma economia‐mundo capitalista.” Nesta perspectiva, desde 1500 em diante, neste espaço chamado Brasil, as mudanças relevantes aconteceram, estão acontecendo e acontecerão como parte do desenvolvimento da economia‐mundo capitalista.

A colonização portuguesa através da implantação de alguns nódulos da cadeia mercantil mundial do açúcar, o fim da condição colonial e a formação do embrião do Estado nacional com a transferência da corte portuguesa em 1808 são claramente processos mundiais que se espraiaram para o Brasil.

Isso teria mudado com o surgimento do Estado nacional em 1822? Ou antes, não seria a condição de periferia da economia‐mundo (de 1500 até mais ou menos a metade doséculo XX) e de semiperiferia a partir de então, o que explica as características do Estado, sua evolução e políticas (internas e externas), a industrialização do século XX, a controversa desindustrializacão contemporânea, e mesmo o tumultuado e incerto momento político‐econômico atual? E mais: as próprias classes sociais não se formaram e atuaram dentro dos nódulos das cadeias mercantis mundiais (açúcar, café, automóveis, soja, etc..) aqui instalados e que constituem o que nacionalismo metodológico chama de economia nacional?

Ao mesmo tempo, ao serem transplantados para o espaço‐tempo‐Brasil, os processos mundiais adquiriram dimensões e traços que moldaram a própria economia‐mundo, como parece ter sido o caso da produção do açúcar, da escravidão, do ouro (no XVIII) e do café nos séculos XIX‐XX.
Além das diversas dimensões (política, economia, meio‐ambiente, ciência e tecnologia, relações internacionais) e períodos das relações entre o Brasil e a economia‐mundo, também serão muito bem‐vindos trabalhos propositivos ou críticos à própria Economia Política dos Sistemas‐Mundo.

10th Brazilian Colloquium on Political Economy of World‐Systems
Florianópolis, october 10-11, 2016

Brazil in the capitalist world‐economy: past, present and perspectives for the 21st century

In its tenth edition, the Brazilian Colloquium on Political Economy of World‐Systems invites scholars to think about the relations between Brazil and the world‐economy. This effort could start with the following statement by Aníbal Quijano and Immanuel Wallerstein: “the Americas were not incorporated into an already existing capitalist world‐economy. There could not have been a capitalist world‐economy without the Americas”. In this sense, since the early 1500s, in the space now called Brazil, important changes took place, are taking place and will take place as part of the development of the capitalist world‐economy.

Portuguese colonization (through the introduction in Brazil of segments of the global commodity chain of sugar in the 15th century) and the end of the colonial situation (with the arrival of the Portuguese court and the formation of an embryonic national state in 1808) were clearly integral to world processes that eventually penetrated Brazil. Did things change with the formal creation of a national state in 1822?

Or wouldn’t the peripheral condition of Brazil from 1500 to the 1950s and its semiperipheral position since then continue to be the reason for the characteristics of the Brazilian state (its evolution, its foreign and domestic policies), for the industrialization in the 20th century, for the controversial deindustrialization in the present time, and even for the current political and economic turbulence of the country? More than that, haven’t the very social classes in Brazil been constituted within local segments of global commodity chains (and not within what, from the perspective of methodological nationalism, is called the “national economy”)? At the same time, the very extension of global commodity chains to Brazil’s “space‐time” has changed the dimensions and characteristics of the world economy. This seems to have been the case with sugar production, modern slavery, gold and coffee, to mention only some key examples.

Beyond studies on the several dimensions (political, economic, environmental, scientific and technological, and of international relations) and on the several phases of the development of Brazil within the world‐economy, the colloquium will also welcome works that develop or criticize the Political Economy of World‐Systems.

40th Annual Conference on the Political Economy of the World-System (PEWS)
University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA
April 8-9, 2016

Conference Theme
Global Commodity Chains, Social Inequalities and Social Movements: The Past and Present of World-Systems Research

The 40th Conference on the Political Economy of the World-System will providea unique opportunity to take stock ofenduringtheoretical and empiricalcontributionsof this perspective,and to identify promising directions for future inquiry and discussion. To this end, we look for contributions offering analytical syntheses of major fields of inquiry (e.g., the spatial and temporal boundaries of global commodity chains; the construction and challenge of various dimensions of social inequality; systemic and anti-systemic social movements). We also welcome empirical studies providing fresh insights and perspectives on these fieldsand key substantive premises of world-systems research, regardless of whether the aim isto endorse, challenge or reformulate.

  1. The Problem of Scope and Methodologies. World-system scholars problematize the notion of unit of analysis in ways that often are ignored elsewhere in the social sciences. Moreover, world-system scholars emphasize the importance of critically assessing the types of evidence and methodologies that are most adequate to apprehend the world as a whole, over time, as the relevant unit of analysis. We want to take stock of those areas in which world-system scholars in the past 40 years have promoted methodological innovation and/or generated useful global data, and to identify questions that demand additional methodological and empirical attention going forward.

  2. Global Commodity Chains. One of the most productive areas for world-systems analysis has been the study of global commodity chains (GCCs). Much of this research has focused on how the growth of GCCs has entailed spatial and temporal inequalities in the distribution of the costs and rewardsof production, distribution and consumption. At times, GCCs appear to give rise to relatively stable hierarchies, but on occasion they also seem to become axes of contestation and transformation. We invite papers that assess these tensions by focusing on the past, present and future of GCCs.

  3. Social Inequalities. World-systems analyses have been recasting the study of between- and within-nation country inequality as constituent aspects of a single field of inquiry: the study of inequality and social stratification as processes that always have been global in their very essence (that is, not simply the interaction of otherwise “autonomous” processes involving, for example, “national wage stratification” on one dimension, “gender” in another,“race” in a third, “global inequality” on a fourth, and so on).Global social stratification pivots around institutional angements that render distributional outcomes as simultaneously “national,” “gendered,” “racialized” and “global” processes. We invite papers focusing on the processes that produce, reproduce, challenge and/or undermine the various forms of inequality that have been part and parcel of the modern world-system.

  4. Social Movements: Systemic and Anti-systemic. Social movements lead us to periodically reevaluate the boundaries between the “systemic” and “anti-systemic.” In this regard, we are interested in critically exploring the ways in which the enduring legacy of Karl Polanyi’s concept of the “double movement” unintentionally may have served to bias world-systems research towards reading all forms of resistance to markets as “anti-systemic,” and movements relying on market mechanisms as “systemic.” In fact,aworld-historical approachcalls forgreater sensitivity to the manifold ways in which such boundaries change over time and space. We welcome all paper proposals that reassess the meaning of “systemic” and “anti-systemic” in past and present social movements.


Submissions and Support:

Paper proposals (around 500 words) should be sent by September30, 2015 to [PEWS-2016@umd.edu]. Please include institutional affiliations and contact information for all authors. We will respond to all submissions by October 16, 2015.
