Intersections of finance and society



A cutting-edge conference on contemporary money and finance

In association with the journal Finance and Society, the Social Studies of Finance Research Network at the University of Sydney, and the City Political Economy Research Centre(CITYPERC) at City University London.

With support from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Sydney and the Department of International Politics at City University London.

Recent years have seen a growth in innovative research on finance across the humanities and social sciences. Following on from the success of the ‘social studies of finance’ approach and the new literature on ‘financialisation’, scholars are taking up the challenge of theorising money and finance beyond the conceptual constraints of orthodox economic theory, with different research agendas emerging under various new monikers. This two-day conference brings these approaches into closer dialogue, identifying new synergies between heterodox political economy and various sociological, historical, and philosophical perspectives on the intersections of finance and society.

The programme combines high-profile keynotes and roundtables with panel sessions on the following themes:

  • Alternative finance
  • Central banking
  • Dimensions of financialisation
  • Fictions of finance
  • Finance and public policy
  • Financial crisis and change
  • Financial technologies
  • Genealogies of finance
  • Money and finance in Europe
  • Philosophy of money
  • Philosophy of debt and finance
  • Safe assets
  • Shadow money and its governance
  • Spaces of finance
  • Trends in financial regulation
