“FUTUR€$ – Prospective Money and Money’s Prospects” Conference, 24-26 September 2015, University of Basel, Switzerland

September 8, 2015

Dear Colleagues to whom this is of interest,

The Conference “FUTUR€$ – Prospective Money and Money’s Prospects” will take place from 24-26 September 2015 at the University of Basel, Switzerland.

In February we circulated a CfP for social-scientific contributions on the past, present, and future(s) of money, and got an overwhelming response of cutting-edge submissions. Three panels on the nature of money, the “Euro crisis”, and new monetary technologies will complement a stream of talks from leading scholars. A further highlight is the evening roundtable assembling a theologian, an anthropologist, a political economist and an investment banker (Christoph Fleischmann, Keith Hart, Dimitris Sotiropoulos, and Rainer Voss) to reflect on the problematic role played by money at our present political-economic juncture.

The speakers (from academia, practice, activism and media) are:
– Massimo Amato (Bocconi University, Milan)
– Eske Bockelmann (TU Chemnitz)
– Philipp Degens (University of Cologne)
– Christoph Deutschmann (University of Tübingen)
– Josué Quintana Diaz (University of Frankfurt)
– Nigel Dodd (London School of Economics)
– Rachel O’Dwyer (Trinity College Dublin)
– Elena Esposito (University of Modena and Reggio Emilia)
