Stadtluft macht reich/arm: Städtische Reichtumsproduktion – öffentliche Armut – soziale Ungleichheiten

22. – 23. September 2016
Fachtagung,
Hochschule Sankt-Georgen,
Frankfurt am Main

Städte, vor allem große Städte, lassen Platz für vielfältige Lebensstile, Überzeugungen und Kulturen. „Stadtluft macht frei“ – auch heute noch. Städte erfüllen zahllose Funktionen, sind Wohn- und Produktionsorte, Shoppingmeilen und Schaufenster regionalen Reichtums; zugleich sind sie politische Gemeinwesen, Kristallisationspunkte solidarischer Beziehungen und identitätsstiftende Heimat. So bieten Städte unzählige Möglichkeiten – je größer der Geldbeutel, umso mehr. In der Stadtluft kann man Wohlstand erreichen und genießen; Stadtluft lässt arme Menschen ihre Armut besonders spüren. Städte sind Motoren der Wohlfahrtsproduktion. Zugleich häufen sich in ihren Verwaltungen die Probleme öffentlicher Armut. Der ökonomischen Seite der Stadtentwicklung und ihren sozialen Folgen ist die fünfte Fachtagung der Reihe „Die Wirtschaft der Gesellschaft“ gewidmet. Welche wirtschaftlichen Faktoren sind für Stadtentwicklungen entscheidend? Wem wird Raum gegeben, sich frei zu entfalten, und wer wird in vernachlässigte Stadtviertel abgedrängt? Wer eignet sich städtischen Boden an und wie wirkt das auf die Stadt – und auf die Chancenverteilung in der Stadt zurück? Wie kommt es zu rasant steigenden Immobilienpreisen und wer profitiert davon?Anmeldeschluss: 04. September 2016.

How to be an Anti-capitalist for the 21st Century

Vortrag von Erik Olin Wright
11.10.2016, 17:00 Uhr bis 19:00 Uhr,
Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin für Sozialforschung.

Discussant: Macartan Humphreys
Moderated by Lena Hipp, head of the WZB Junior Research Group „Work and Care“.

While capitalism has become more destructive both to the lives of people and the health of the environment, it seems to most people an unalterable force of nature. Revolutionary ambitions of smashing capitalism through a ruptural seizure of state power, a coercive dissolution of capitalist institutions and their replacement by an emancipatory alternative, lack credibility after the experiences of the 20th century. Social democratic hopes of taming capitalism by neutralizing its harmful effects through decisive state regulations have been undermined by the globalization and financialization of capital. Are these the only logics of transformation? There may be a different route that points beyond capitalism: eroding capitalism by building emancipatory alternatives to capitalism in the spaces and cracks within capitalist economies where this is possible and struggling to defend and expand those spaces.

Erik Olin Wright is Vilas Distinguished Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he has taught sociology since 1976. His academic work has been centrally concerned with reconstructing the Marxist tradition of social theory and research in ways that attempt to make it more relevant to contemporary concerns and more cogent as a scientific framework of analysis. His empirical research has focused especially on the changing character of class relations in developed capitalist societies. Since 1992 he has directed The Real Utopias Project which explores institutional designs that embody emancipatory ideals and yet are attentive to issues of pragmatic feasibility. He was president of the American Sociological Association in 2011-12. His most recent books include Envisioning Real Utopias (2010); American Society: how it really works (with Joel Rogers 2011 and 2015); Understanding Class (2015); and Alternatives to Capitalism (with Robin Hahnel, 2016).

This event is part of the WZB Distinguished Lectures in Social Sciences.

Kapitalismus als imaginierte Zukunft. Zur Bedeutung fiktionaler Erwartungen für die Dynamik der Wirtschaft

Vortrag von Jens Beckert
25. Oktober 2016, 19.00 Uhr,
Hamburger Institut für Sozialforschung.

Im Hamburger Institut für Sozialforschung beginnt am 25. Oktober eine neue Vortragsreihe »Bausteine des Kapitalismus«.
Spätestens mit der globalen Wirtschafts- und Finanzkrise von 2008 sind Kapitalismusanalyse und -kritik in die öffentliche Debatte, aber auch in die Wissenschaft zurückgekehrt. Ein Verständnis der krisenhaften Gegenwart, da scheint man sich über politische Lagergrenzen hinweg einig zu sein, setzt einen Begriff, ein Konzept von Kapitalismus voraus. Doch darüber, wie Kapitalismus zu denken ist, gibt es weder in der Öffentlichkeit noch in den Geschichts- und Sozialwissenschaften einen Konsens. Während sich die Soziologie bemüht, den unscharf gewordenen Begriff durch Attribute wie Finanzialisierung oder Digitalisierung an neue Gegebenheiten anzupassen, nehmen Historikerinnen und Historiker fundamentalere Revisionen vor, wenn sie fragen, welche Merkmale kapitalistische Ökonomien überhaupt von nichtkapitalistischen Wirtschaftsformen unterscheiden. Die über einen langen Zeitraum als Synonym für Kapitalismusanalyse geltende marxistische Theorieschule spielt in diesen Debatten interessanterweise eine bloß marginale Rolle.

In der im Oktober beginnenden Vortragsreihe »Bausteine des Kapitalismus« werden verschiedene Zugriffe und Elemente des Kapitalismus aus historischer und soziologischer Perspektive diskutiert. Im Zentrum stehen Fragen nach der veränderten Relevanz von Schulden, besonders im Zusammenhang mit politischer Herrschaft, aber auch nach der zunehmenden globalen Ungleichheit oder nach normativen Bedingungen unternehmerischen Handelns.

Can Pluralism Save Economics? Pluralistic Approaches to Teaching and Research in Economics

5. Januar 2017
Konferenz der International Confederation of Associations for Pluralism in Economics (ICAPE),
Roosevelt University, Chicago.

Although the global financial crisis of 2007-2009 exposed many of the deficiencies in mainstream economics, there have been few changes in the discipline. The same tired models and approaches continue to dominate research publications and textbooks. This has prompted increasing calls for pluralism in economics, most recently from the International Student Initiative for Pluralism in Economics (www.isipe.net). There has never been a more important time to gather pluralistic economists together to develop robust alternatives and to bolster pluralistic approaches to teaching and research.

The next ICAPE conference will occur on the day before the 2017 ASSA meetings in Chicago from 8AM to 5PM at Roosevelt University in downtown Chicago. Roosevelt is located within an easy walk of the convention hotels. The conference registration fee is $80 ($40 for graduate students/low income).

The main conference theme is a broad one: What do pluralistic economists have to offer students, the discipline and the people of the world to address our pressing economic problems, including inequality, poverty, climate change, macroeconomic instability, financialization, war and conflict, and the inability of mainstream economics to address these issues adequately. We welcome work from all strands of heterodox economic theory, including evolutionary, ecological, complexity, institutional, feminist, Austrian, Marxian, Sraffian, Post-Keynesian, behavioral/psychological, social, radical political economy, critical realism, and general heterodox. We are particularly interested in material from graduate students, sessions on pluralistic teaching, and material on the state of pluralism in economics. And, we are interested in research from any of the perspectives listed above.

The Political Economy of International Organizations

12. bis 14. Januar 2017
The 10th Annual Conference on The Political Economy of International Organizations,
University of Bern, Switzerland.

The PEIO conference brings together economists, political scientists and other scholars to address political-economy issues related to any international organization, including the World Trade Organization, the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the European Union, and also other international organizations that have as yet received less attention in the academic literature. Questions we seek to address include how IOs are organized and governed, what are the incentives of governments dealing with IOs as well as the incentives of the bureaucrats who staff them, and what are the effects of IOs on policy outcomes. We will also consider the interaction of IOs with transnational actors such as commercial lobbies and NGOs. Finally, we have a particular interest in the interaction of the international political economy with the domestic political economy of IO members.

DISCOURSE, IDEOLOGY, AND POLITICAL ECONOMY

17. bis 19. Januar 2017.
DiscourseNet Winter School No. 3,
Valencia, Spanien.
Deadline: 20. September 2016.

Within the multitude of approaches in the field of discourse studies, the question of how ideology, power and authority operate in and through discourse(s) takes a special place. Whether it is the study of how power is (re)produced in micro-practices and interactions, the analysis of inequality and dominance in macro-structures, or the investigation of the functioning of ideology in texts, spoken communication, gestures or pictures – these topics have been an integral part of many research traditions on the intersection of language and society.
The DiscourseNet Winter School brings together advanced BA and MA as well as PhD students who want to pursue research on questions revolving around Discourse, Ideology and Political Economy and to discuss the methodological and theoretical challenges of their thesis projects or first ideas. Its aim is to bring young and established discourse researchers together to address practical challenges in discourse research. The event will provide a collaborative exchange and hands-on research experience in a rather informal workshop setting. Introductory workshops on the three main fields will be given by more experienced scholars (Discourse: Johannes Angermuller, Ideology: Benno Herzog and Johannes Beetz, Political Economy: Jens Maesse and Amelie Kutter).

Uncertainty is a pervasive feature of human experience. This fact is reflected in a large number of scientific research on uncertainty.

Social Finance, Impact Investing, and the Financialization of the Public Interest

23. bis 24. März 2017
Konferenz,
Centre for Globalisation and Governance, Universität Hamburg.
Deadline: 02. November 2016.

Social finance covers a wide range of practices aiming at providing private capital to social organizations, businesses and funds. The development of these practices is justified by promising ways to finance development and social policies in a period of austerity that sees limits to and reductions in public spending. Social finance is a heterogeneous field in the process of formation. In the US, social finance has gained momentum since 2007, when the Rockefeller Foundation decided to finance an Impact Investing program. In Europe, the UK government has put Impact Investing at the heart of its G8 presidency agenda in 2013. Since then, the EU organizations have launched a number of policy initiatives, such as a “Social Impact Accelerator” fund of funds. Social finance includes practices such as Impact Investing (i.e. investments into companies’ equity with the intention to generate a financial return as well as social or environmental “impact”), Social Impact Bonds, Venture Philanthropy, Mission-Related Investment and Program-Related Investment. Its development requires also (more or less sophisticated) social impact assessment methods and social reporting standards. Various types of actors are interested in the development of these practices, among them audit and consulting firms, private and public fund managers, banks, foundations and social entrepreneurs. Like practices and actors, financed objects vary largely, ranging from investments into the Global South, such as microfinance, locally owned cooperatives, certified B corporations, or private-public hybrid organizations in Western welfare states.
As these activities come with a general redefinition of the public interest and the welfare state, we welcome interdisciplinary contributions on the conference theme.

Doctoral Colloquium in Business History

29. bis 30. März 2017,
Business History Conference,
Denver, Colorado.

Civilizations is the theme of the 2017 Business History Conference meeting. From the House of Medici to Japan, Inc., business and commerce have shaped society and public life. Eighteenth-century social theorists such as Montesquieu and Smith described the “civilizing” process of long-distance trade networks in agricultural staples and luxury goods in the transition from feudalism to commercialism.

In the early 20th century, the U.S. was often seen as a nation where businesspeople, with their ambitions and innovations, had even come to define society. In 1931 James Truslow Adams characterized the United States as a “business civilization,” in which “most of the energy, ability, and ambition of the country has found its outlet, if not its satisfaction, in business.” More recently, with rising globalization and financialization, observers in many countries—Brazil, Germany, France, Japan, and China—have noted, with alarm or excitement, the role high-tech entrepreneurs and international bankers have played in shaping social norms and policy. In 2009 an economic summit in China explored the “Chinese approach to a new business civilization.” Weiterlesen.

Interest from the Perspective of Islamic Economics

1. bis 2. April 2017,
the 5th Islamic Economics Workshop,
Sakarya (Türkei).

After the economic crisis in 2008, policies of central banks to decrease interest rates and initiation of negative interest policies in some central banks caused the debates in economics literature to be aggravated. There are some who defend the regulatory role of interest in capitalist economic system, while there are also other parties who claim that interest causes social problems such as unjust distribution of income and inequality. However, seen from a bird’s eye view, it can be observed that interest became a part of economic activity beyond academic debates – both on an individual and institutional level. Although it seems like an indivisible part of economic system, interest is actually a prohibited practice in Islam, Christianity and Judaism.  Interest/riba is a totally and openly prohibited practice in the Qur’an; and the questions of how to handle with this issue within the Islamic Economics framework and how to shape a new system accordingly are significant both for Muslims and for those who seek for an alternative to the current system.

Well known for his work on Max Weber, his analysis of the limitations of equilibrium economics, and his contributions to the development of Austrian economics, Lachmann’s legacy revolves around three central themes: radical subjectivism, hermeneutics and human agency; market process and legal order; capital theory and macroeconomics.

Der soziologische Neo-Institutionalismus gilt als eine der produktivsten Theorierichtungen der Organisationsforschung. Wenngleich er primär – oder gar ausschließlich – durch soziologische Konzepte geprägt und weiterentwickelt worden ist, scheint sein Verhältnis zur Soziologie nach wie vor ungeklärt.

History of Recent Economics Conference

21. bis 22. April 2017
Universität Luzern

The eleventh History of Recent Economics Conference (HISRECO) will be held at the University of Lucerne on April 21-22, 2017. Since 2007 HISRECO has brought together researchers from various backgrounds to study the history of economics in the postwar period. It is the organizers’ belief that this period, during which economics became one of the dominant discourses in contemporary society, is worth studying for its own sake. The increasing availability of archival materials, along with the development of new perspectives inherited from the larger history and sociology of knowledge, has helped to provide insightful histories of the development of recent economic practices, ideas, and techniques. In particular, this area of research offers good opportunities to young scholars who are interested in interdisciplinary approaches to the history of economics.

Chains of Value: How Intermediaries Evaluate Financial Instruments

4. bis 5. Mai 2017
University of Edinburgh.
CfP Deadline: 15. Dezember 2016.

This international meeting will focus on a set of important, related issues:

  1. The role of intermediaries in financial markets.There are increasingly lengthy chains of intermediation between savers and the end-users of their savings, and a plausible hypothesis (to be explored at the meeting) is that intermediaries’ situations in those chains strongly shape what they do and the influence they have. Also of interest is the sheer cost of intermediation, highlighted by the recent findings by Thomas Philippon and Guillaume Bazot that the unit cost of financial intermediation has not declined (in the US since 1886, in Europe since 1950), despite the huge advances in finance’s key technology, computing.
  2. How market participants estimate the economic worth of the financial instruments that they trade.Valorisation and evaluation have become major topics in recent economic sociology and related fields, and at this meeting we will explore how this exciting new literature can best be extended to understand evaluation in finance.
  3. Machines as mediators or intermediaries within financial markets.For example, in many markets, most trades now pass through the ‘hands’ of machines, and there is now, for instance, a growing literature on high-frequency trading (HFT). How do machines perform their roles as mediators/intermediaries? How, for example, do HFT algorithms evaluate the financial instruments that they trade?

New Economic Sociology and Sociology: Where Do They Meet? Where Do They Diverge?

22. bis 23. Mai 2017,
the Polish Sociological Association Section of Economic Sociology conference,
Warsaw University (Polen).

Economic sociology got established as an approach to economic phenomena with the tools of sociology. This was relaunched in the 1980s in close association with the thesis of social embeddedness of economic action, and it continues to flourish and develop ever since. Hence, the embeddedness theoretical foundation was supplemented with other strong assumptions regarding power, institutions, social networks, as well as uncertainty, unintended consequences and fictional expectations. While, in addition to the US branch of new economic sociology, other related schools soon came along, such as the distinct European platforms.

The sociological dimension of new economic sociology notwithstanding, it is also observable, especially in the case of the generic European approach, that this is rather loosely coupled with sociology. Weiterlesen.

The Good Organization: Aspirations • Interventions • Struggles

You will soon discover that Copenhagen is a city of bridges and that these play a key role in the organization of its economic and civic life; it is for that reason that perhaps our most famous bridge has found its way into our logo. In the past, our ancestors, the Vikings, sailed the oceans and created a solid self-perception among Danes of belonging to a great maritime nation.
We have now taken to building bridges instead of sailing out to conquer the world. It is good for business, good for branding our talents for engineering and design, and not least good for public life, opening up new views of the city and enhancing its flow.
But as we know, bridges don’t just appear out of nowhere, they are complex organizational projects driven by aspirations, interventions and struggles.
As landmarks, bridges typically illustrate aspirations to greatness. Bridges are simultaneously interventions in the environment and in society. They can make a ferry line and hundreds of jobs obsolete, demand expropriation of houses, disturb natural habitats, or bring together disjointed neighborhoods. And bridges and struggles go together. If you visit the harbor of Copenhagen, you will see a bridge where the ends do not yet meet. It has been standing like that for a long time, due to technical, political and organizational problems. And if you try to cross the Øresund Bridge to Sweden right now, you will find a once quick and easy trip mired in the administrative politics of the refugee crisis; a crisis where Good Organization appears, at present, notably lacking.
 
The 33rd EGOS Colloquium in Copenhagen offers a bridge to discussions concerning the aspirations, interventions and struggles for The Good Organization.
 
We consider The Good Organization both a tempting prospect and a project inherently ridden with tensions. Would it ever make sense to talk about “The” Good Organization? What is to count as “Good”? What makes Organization?

9th International Critical Finance Studies Conference

3. bis 5. August 2017,
University of Leicester,
Deadline: 31. März 2017.

The conference is part of an on-going project that seeks to engage with finance in critical and creative ways. Although critical attention is regularly devoted to finance, it usually takes the form of a call for transparency, regulation or restructuring. It also tends to centre on „high finance“ rather than processes of financialisation, a term coined by Randy Martin that has proven useful for past Critical Finance Studies discussions. Indeed in this conference we plan to honour Randy’s legacy, following his untimely death, by focusing our keynotes and panel discussions on consideration of the ongoing implications of his work.

11. August 2017,
Konferenz an der Desautels Faculty of Management, McGill University, Montreal.
Deadline: 23. Januar 2017.

The event will highlight work that advances research in Economic Sociology and Organizations, Occupations, and Work, using a diverse set of theoretical and methodological approaches.  We invite research that explores core themes from both domains, as well as research that develops the intersections and tensions between the two.  We are especially interested in new work that engages with emerging phenomena and/or uses novel perspectives. We hope that the conference will bring together economic sociologists and scholars of organizations, occupations, and work from across institutional divides, including those in sociology departments, as well as in schools of management, engineering, public policy, and industrial and labor relations.  Thematic sessions will be determined based on submissions.

The world is witnessing a multi-dimensional and international crisis. Although the crisis is global, it has regional and national expressions and specificities.
What does our research teach us? Where we are, what questions disturb us, what are we unable to understand and explain, or to change, and what do we not know? What contributions have we made, both to the social sciences and to knowledge, and to political, economic and social debates and to social struggles? What challenges are facing us, with regard both to the development of the social sciences and to their political insertion? Identifying, debating and responding to questions such as these are the objectives of this conference. (Weiterlesen)

Entgrenzung von Markt und Staat? Wirtschaftssoziologische Untersuchungen zur Krise der Ordnungsbildung

26. bis 27. Oktober 2017,
Jahrestagung der DGS-Sektion Wirtschaftssoziologie, Universität Hamburg.
Deadline: 24. Juli 2017.

Die Sektionstagung soll ein Forum bieten, die Frage der wirtschaftlichen (Un-)Ordnungsbildung aus unterschiedlichen Theorieperspektiven zu diskutieren. Dabei ist es explizit gewünscht, die Fragen nach der (Un-)Ordnungsbildung auch empirisch zu stellen und zu beantworten. Hier sind unterschiedliche Felder denkbar, der Call ist jedoch explizit nicht auf diese Felder beschränkt:

  • Finanzmärkte und Finanzinstitutionen stehen spätestens seit der Finanzkrise im Jahr 2008 im Verdacht für Unordnungsbildung verantwortlich zu sein. Nicht zuletzt deshalb sind Finanzmärkte ein ergiebiger Gegenstand für die Emotionssoziologie (Jocelyn F. Pixley). Gleichzeitig besteht hier aber auch Grund, eine erstaunliche Stabilität trotz Krisenanfälligkeit festzustellen. Eine Stabilität, die nur auf Kosten der Sicherheit anderer gesellschaftlicher Bereiche zu erhalten ist. Interessant sind hier auch spezielle Fälle der De- und Reregulierung, in welchen Ordnungsbildung (für wen?) verhandelt wird. So kämpft z.B. der intransparente over the counter-Handel um seinen Status als effizienter Markt (trotz Intransparenz) und verschiebt so die Grenzen des Legitimen und die definitorischen Bestimmungen dessen, was ein Markt idealerweise ist. Zudem scheinen die Grenzverschiebungen zwischen dem Öffentlichen und dem Privaten in der Finanzindustrie immer wieder vermeintlich rechtsfreie Räume zu schaffen, denen sich die Justiz in aufwendigen und langwierigen Prozessen ex-post zuwenden muss (z.B. cum-ex Geschäfte).

Finance as a response to global environmental crises? Critical analysis of the ‘economicization’ of carbon emissions and biodiversity

29. November bis 1. Dezember 2017,
Konferenz des Centre for Globalisation and Governance, Universität Hamburg,
Deadline: 22. Mai 2017.

In this conference we look at the ways finance is applied to convert capitalism from the source of global environmental crises into a provider of responses to these crises. Reaching a zero-carbon emission economy and maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem integrity are presented by international organizations and national policymakers as decisive goals for the future of humankind. While it is clear that such goals cannot be achieved without radical transformations in the established forms of social organization associated with the operation of the global economy, modes of production and consumption, and more generally dominant ways of life and value systems, they are also said to require the ‘enrolment’ of major economic actors to realize massive new investments in ‘green’ technologies and ‘sustainable’ infrastructures. The industrial and financial sectors have historically been part of the framing and making of the present situation. Also, since the 1970s, those sectors have played a growing role in the definition, government and management of environmental problems. This may explain why there are so many initiatives, tools and instruments, programs and projects that rely on economic and/or financial instruments, such as carbon trading schemes, green bonds, the carbon divestment movement, compensation finance and ecosystem services finance, REDD+ contracts, and venture capital for sustainability.

Moral Economies: Work, Values and Economic Ethics

6. bis 9. Dezember, International Conference, Max-Planck-Institute for Social Anthropology, Wittenberg at Stiftung Leucorea, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg.

Luther’s notion of work as a vocation became the cornerstone of Max Weber’s concept of a work ethic. Rather than rehash the debate as to whether this (in Calvinist form) helped to launch modern capitalism, as Weber argued in “The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism”, at this conference we wish to investigate the moral dimensions of economic activities and the world of work in the present. Of course, this includes historical study of the ‘moral background’ (Gabriel Abend). Weber’s concept of the economic ethic (“the practical impulses for [economic] action which are founded in the psychological and pragmatic contexts of religions”) attempts to capture the connection between strong moral backgrounds (religious or otherwise) and the empirical realities of economic behaviour. From a more political angle, E.P. Thompson’s concept of the ‚moral economy‘ captures how norms and mutual obligations constitute social groups and their attitudes to changing macroeconomic circumstances. On this point the social historian has much in common with the Durkheimian sociologist. On the 100th anniversary of Émile Durkheim’s death, it is appropriate to set his “The Division of Labour in Society” alongside the contributions of Weber as tools to help us explore the field of moral economy and economic ethics. Durkheim’s argument that different types of division of labour produce different forms of moral connection between individuals in the economic process, whether of solidarity or anomie, has both historical and contemporary significance.

Pluralism and Economics 10 Years after the Crisis – (and 200 Years after Marx’s Birth)

4. Januar 2018,
the International Confederation of Associations for Pluralism in Economics (ICAPE) conference, Drexel University (Philadelphia, PA, USA).
Deadline: 5. September 2017.

It has now been 10 years since the financial crisis, but there have been very few changes in mainstream economics. Meanwhile, pluralist economists have been developing sophisticated ideas aimed at addressing the major problems confronting contemporary society. It is also interesting that the 10 year anniversary of the financial crisis finds us at the 200th anniversary of Marx’s birth. Marx, of course, railed against the flaws of the mainstream economics of his day, setting the stage for heterodox attempts to move beyond narrowly conceived mainstream approaches to a richer, historical approach to the discipline.

This year’s ICAPE conference has multiple themes regarding what pluralist economists have to offer the economics profession and society in general in 2018. [Weiterlesen]

Tagung der Sektion „Politische Ökonomie“ der Deutschen Vereinigung für Politikwissenschaft (DVPW) und der Schader-Stiftung in Darmstadt.

Die unmittelbaren Folgen der Finanzkrise sind in Politik- und Wirtschaftswissenschaft bereits umfassend diskutiert worden.

Zehn Jahre danach wollen wir Bilanz ziehen: Welche politischen, wirtschaftlichen und gesellschaftlichen Implikationen der Finanzkrise sind in Deutschland und Europa zu beobachten? Dabei sollen sowohl die Auswirkungen der Finanzkrise auf individuelle Einstellungen und Wahrnehmungen in den Blick genommen werden, als auch die Entwicklungen auf nationalstaatlicher Ebene, etwa bezogen auf politische Veränderungen oder gesellschaftliche Umbrüche. Auch nach den mittel- und langfristigen Auswirkungen der Finanzkrise auf einzelne Politikfelder soll gefragt werden, wie etwa Arbeitsmarktpolitik,Finanzpolitik, Steuerpolitik, Sozialpolitik oder Bankenregulierung. Gleichfalls diskutiert werden sollen die im Zusammenhang mit der Finanzkrise stehenden Entwicklungen im europäischen Mehrebenensystem. [Weiterlesen]

The Financial Life of Social Reproduction

10. bis 14. April 2018,
AAG Annual Meeting, New Orleans.

Social reproduction refers to the social, cultural and material subsistence of individuals, families, households and communities. Although social reproduction has been theorized by many disciplinary traditions over the past 40 years, the contemporary moment raises new questions and poses new challenges for how we understand the concept. Catalysts for shifting understandings of social reproduction include the prevalence of austerity, rising inequality, attempts to privatize social security and the penetration of financial logics, metrics and practices into the nooks and crannies of everyday life. Meanwhile, the 2008 financial crisis has raised questions about the role of states in facilitating social reproduction, the role of finance and the private sector, and the scales at which social reproduction is achieved. In this session, our goal is to deepen engagement between scholars of social reproduction (broadly understood) and scholars of finance.

Exit, Voice and Loyalty: Alternative Economic Models and Responses to Decline in Contemporary Society

21. und 22. Mai 2018,
Workshop, Polen (Warschau).
Deadline: 10. Dezember 2017.

The start-up intuition of this Workshop in new economic sociology is that, as far as the empirical stimuli and challenges for sociological imagination are concerned, the contemporary humanitarian, political and economic context is similar to 1989, when the end of history thesis was launched. Although very demanding, because it provokes the sociologists and new economic sociologists to assess their system of values and to make a statement on issues that go beyond theory, the actual circumstances of crises, recovery attempts and alternative strategies of coping in which the academic work is carried out is very valuable for theory developing. This background not only indicates that the issue of exit-voice-loyalty is further actual. But it also reveals resources and types of reactions to downturn and decline that are more recent.

Social Studies of Finance: Implications for a Financialized Economy

5. bis 7. Juli 2018,
European Group for Organizational Studies (EGOS) Colloquium 2018, Sub-theme 38, Estonian Business School, Tallinn (Estonia).

Since the 2008 financial crisis, organization theorists have become increasingly interested in the social studies of finance. The social studies of finance use insights from economic sociology and science and technology studies to explore how financial markets are socially constructed through actors, norms, and material devices. Existing research within the social studies of finance has developed a detailed understanding of the inner workings of financial markets. For example, Beunza and Stark (2004) explored the organization of derivatives trading rooms and MacKenzie and Pardo-Guerra (2014) examined the role of trading algorithms. Scholars within the social studies of finance, however, still need to draw out the implications that their research has for the “big questions” (Jarzabkowski et al., 2015: p. 185) that arise around the financialized economy that has emerged over the last 40 year.
