Call for Papers

The subprime financial crisis has recently shown the limits of an abstract and disembodied view of financial markets and their so-called “efficiency”. A new interdisciplinary field of research – often known as “Social Studies of Finance” – has been purposefully tackling these limitations, and has developed with a view to “reembedding” financial practices into the social world. This collective dynamic of interdisciplinary research (gathering areas such as sociology, economics, history, anthropology, political science, management studies, geography and so forth), is grounded on a stiff conviction: the need to study financial activities as forms of social life. Showing how financial reality is embedded in social networks, culture, technology, scientific knowledge and institutional contexts can renew our understanding of finance.

Awesome! SSFA for this initiative. The recent melt-down of the global financial crisis is an indication for us to start thinking ahead. Hence the seminar shall serve a platform to brainstorm on how to blend the contemporary financial cultures with socia
