Art and Finance and Ethics of Debt – Call For Papers in Finance and Society

November 19, 2015

From Nathan Coombs

The journal Finance and Society has issued two Call for Papers for forthcoming special issues, both scheduled for publication in 2016.

Finance and Art

The first, entitled Finance and Art, is guest edited by Suhail Malik (Goldsmiths) and Gerald Nestler (Independent artist). The issue invites historical, ethnographic, sociological, philosophical, and artistic engagement in thinking about the flood of money that is entering the art world. In particular, the issue aims to move from critique towards the construction of new theories and practices able to make sense of the production, valuation, and circulation of symbolic, pecuniary, and material responses to the logics of finance.

Please submit abstracts or proposals by 1 December 2015 to both Suhail Malik (s.malik@gold.ac.uk) and Gerald Nestler (mail@geraldnestler.net) for initial review. Once screened the deadline for complete contributions will be 15 February 2016, after which they will undergo double-blind peer review. The special issue will be published as vol. 2, no. 1 in September 2016.

Further information about the issue is available here.

Ethics of Debt

The second special issue is entitled Ethics of Debt and is guest edited by William Carter (Iowa State) and Kate Padgett Walsh (Iowa State). Building on the recent contributions of authors such as David Graeber, Kenneth Dyson, and Miranda Joseph to the enduring topic of debt, this issue seeks bold, post-disciplinary scholarship exploring how financial practices emerge from and shape the social and ethical dimensions of debt today. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, financial practices in the history of political economy and the ethics of financial innovation.

Completed manuscripts of 9,000–11,000 words should be submitted to William Carter (wcarter@iastate.edu) and Kate Padgett Walsh (kpadwa@iastate.edu) for initial review by 15 February 2016. The special issue will be published as vol. 2, no. 2 in December 2016.

Further information about the issue is available here.
