Call for papers: Sociology of Finance at the 2011 SASE Meeting in Madrid
November 8, 2010
From Akos Rona-Tas:
Alya Guseva, Bruce Carruthers and I have launched a new network in the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE) on finance and society. The next annual meeting of SASE will be held in Madrid, June 23-25, 2011, and we would like to invite you to participate. The deadline to submit an abstract and/or organize a panel is January 15, 2011.
Here is the link to the conference
Please find below the brief description of the new Finance and Society Network
N: Finance and Society
The goal of this network is to promote cross-disciplinary dialogue on the study of finance and include perspectives from social sciences outside of economics. Specifically, we encourage research that highlights the social embeddedness of finance (for instance, the continuing importance of social networks and the role of ideas, theories and devices in shaping financial practices), or examines the links between finance and a number of other topics including public policy, legal and economic development, inequality, and corporate governance, inspired particularly by the recent financial crisis; investigates historic origins of modern financial instruments, analyzes regional or international differences in financial markets, or focuses on the social and cultural consequences of the redistribution of resources through financial markets, the financialization of everyday life and the expansion of credit. We welcome a wide range of methodological approaches, including but not limited to archival research, ethnography, interviews, formal network analysis and survey research.
Please spread this message to others with interest in this area. We hope to see you in Madrid,
