Community Economies Scholars Write Write Write

Bolsena Lunch

For 10 days in June, thirteen community economies scholars were ensconced in the 16th century Convento S. Maria del Giglio, Bolsena (Italy), for the 2019 Community Economies Theory and Writing Retreat.

The scholars, from universities in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Spain, UK and US were all recipients of a 2019 Julie Graham Community Economies Research Fund Fellowship.

One scholar described the retreat as providing "the exhilarating swoosh of getting into a writing flow", while another talked about the retreat as "a gift for thinking, writing, and discussing, and a space that was simultaneously productive and restorative".
