From Bodies to Black-Scholes: A Two-day Workshop on Performativity and the Social Studies of Finance
Organized by Daniel Beunza (Columbia U.) and Yuval Millo (LSE)
Columbia Business School, New York, 28-29 April 2008
The Social Studies of Finance (SSF) is one of the fastest-growing and most intriguing new fields in the social sciences today. Born from the intersection of sociology of science, economic sociology, management and critical accounting, SSF offers a new vantage point for the analysis of financial markets and their dynamics.
This intensive two-day workshop is convened by Daniel Beunza from Columbia Business School and Yuval Millo from the London School of Economics. It is aimed at presenting the field to newcomers, and is directed at research students and early-career researchers in accounting, finance, management, political science and sociology.
To allow effective discussion, the group size is limited to 12 participants. The workshop’s fee is US$ 200, which includes meals. To apply for the workshop, please send by February 31 your CV and a one-page description of your research and how it relates to SSF to firstname.lastname@example.org
