Professional Workshop: Performativity and the Social Studies of Finance at the 2011 Academy of Management

May 6, 2011

Whether it is the European sovereign debt crisis, the NYSE- Deutsche Boerse merger or the precipitous exchange rate of the dollar, recent events make clear that (as the ad reads), “we live in Financial Times.” Given this, I don’t think it is exaggerated to say that the Social Studies of Finance (SSF) is one of the most exciting sub-disciplines to have emerged in the social sciences in recent years.

This summer, Yuval Millo and I are organizing a Professional Development Workshop with a primer on the literature on Performativity and the Social Studies of Finance. This workshop will take place in the context of the 2011 Academy of Management in Texas, San Antonio. The intended audience is researchers with research projects regarding performativity or the financial markets.

Participants in the workshop will receive an introduction to the theories underpinning the literature and will then have a hands-on experience of discussing **their own ideas** critically with peers and potential collaborators and have the opportunity to be mentored by leading scholars in this sociological perspective. It will be run by Yuval and myself, with surprise guest appearances.

The workshop is free, but registration is required. To register, simply send an email to me directly at d.beunza@lse.ac.uk
