The purpose of this one day colloquium is to introduce a new research project, “The Domestic Moral Economy: an ethnographic study of value in the Asia Pacific Region” that has been generously funded by the Economic and Social Research Council UK from 2011 to 2015. For this event, we have invited scholars from several disciplines, all of whom are currently conducting research in different regions around the globe, to join us. They each have pursued different projects, but hold a common interest in the reframing of the general theme of moral economy as a source of reasoning about beneficence. As organizers, we aim to open a wider ranging interdisciplinary discussion about the different faces of the value question, and its aspects in our times.
