Intersections of finance and society 2017

Second annual conference on 'Intersections of finance and society'
2-3 November 2017 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) at City, University of London, and the Finance and Society Network at the University of Sydney. 


The growth of new forms of money and finance is increasingly recognised as one of the defining developments of our time, and it is beginning to yield innovative research across the humanities and social sciences. Following on from the success of our inaugural conference last year, this two-day event aims to foster further dialogue between the diverse camps that make up the new field of ‘finance and society’ studies. The programme combines high-profile keynotes and roundtables with panel sessions on a range of themes, including financial aesthetics, shadow banking, new era bubbles, and the philosophy of money. More information is available from the conference website.


Amin Samman is Lecturer in International Political Economy in the Department of International Politics at City, University of London, and founding co-editor of Finance and Society.

Martijn Konings is Associate Professor and Australian Research Council Fellow in the Department of Political Economy at the University of Sydney, Australia. Along with Melinda Cooper, he edits the new book series Currencies: New Thinking for Financial Times for Stanford University Press.
