The Political Economy Centre (PEC) and Politics Department are pleased to welcome two Hallsworth Visiting Professors this semester: Professor Laura Macdonald from Carleton University (Ottawa, Canada) and Professor Adam David Morton from the University of Sydney (Australia).  

Prof Macdonald delivered a PEC research seminar on September 28th entitled “An Inclusive Trade Agenda and the US-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement: Feminist and Labour Rights Contestation”. It was well attended by staff and students across the School of Social Sciences. On 18 October she will be working with colleagues from the University of Manchester (Aliki Koutlou and Silke Trommer) and King’s University College at Western University, Canada (Erin Hannah) to deliver a special PhD Masterclass focused on how to conduct research across the areas of social movement studies, feminist politics, international political economy, development studies and international trade law, which are interested in working towards just and equitable global political economies.
