FUTURES OF FINANCE: A one-day symposium

FUTURES OF FINANCE: A one-day symposium
Saturday, September 24, 2011 - 12:00am

The Franklin Humanities Institute is pleased to present...

This one-day symposium brings together scholars in the humanities, interpretive social sciences, and management studies to collaboratively engage the urgent social, historical, and epistemological questions that have arisen in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. What shifting codes of finance has the crisis made visible? What are the future forms, logics, networks, and social worlds of finance? What future forms of knowledge-production does the crossdisciplinary study of finance demand?

Co-sponsored by Marxism and Society and the journal Cultural Anthropology
