Intersections of finance and society 2019
4th annual conference of the Finance and Society Network (FSN)
12-13 December 2019 at City, University of London, UK
Organised by Amin Samman and Martijn Konings, in association with Finance and Society, the City Political Economy Research Centre (CITYPERC), and the Department of Political Economy at the University of Sydney. More info available here.
Building on the success of our previous conferences, the 4th annual Finance and Society Network (FSN) conference aims to foster further dialogue between the diverse camps that make up the new field of ‘finance and society’ studies. In particular, it seeks to identify new synergies between heterodox political economy and various sociological, historical, and philosophical perspectives on the intersections of finance and society. Contributions are also encouraged from the fringes of conventional academia, with visual, performance art, and activist or practitioner perspectives welcome.
