Call for papers: sociology workshop on financial exchanges at the NYSE (deadline: July 15th)

June 24, 2013

Call for papers and open registration (deadline: July 15th):

The Sociology of Market Microstructure

A Workshop at the New York Stock Exchange

Daniel Beunza and Yuval Millo (organizers)

August 9th 2013, 9.00 am – 5.30 pm

In the past three decades economic sociologists have developed a distinct understanding of financial exchanges, yet the current trend towards automation and ongoing regulatory debate over high frequency trading have called for renewed research on the topic. This workshop aims at putting together a coherent body of sociological research focused on financial exchanges and related issues — the automation of trading, high frequency trading, financial regulation, the Flash Crash, the European MiFID directive, etc.– with the goal of developing a sociological literature in the area known as “market microstructure” in economics. Appropriately, the event will take place within the New York Stock Exchange, and include tours of the floor in small groups. Confirmed speakers include Daniel Beunza, Bruce Carruthers, Donald MacKenzie, Karin Knorr Cetina, Juan Pablo Pardo-Guerra, Aaron Pitluck, Yuval Millo, and others.

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations. Registration to attend is now open for participants. Places will be limited to 50, including the panelists and will be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis. Registration is free, but we expect a firm commitment. For inquiries please contact Daniel Beunza and or Yuval Millo at

    hi, are any expenses paid?

  2. danielbeunza Says:

    Hi Duncan, good question! there is no charge to attend the workshop, and the food and drinks through the day are free. But you’ll have to pay for your own travel to New York and accommodation. For those who are going to the ASA anyways, it’s just one extra hotel night. This is why we chose this date. Regards – D
