CFP: Digitalisation and alternative monetary and financial spaces, 2022

Digitalisation and creation of alternative monetary and financial spaces.
Université Grenoble Alpes, 9-10 June 2022.

Researchers from Université Grenoble Alpes, Université de Genève and Université de Lausanne are organising a workshop on the theme of digitalisation and monetary-financial alternatives:

This two-day workshop proposes an exploration of the intersection between digitalisation and alternative monetary and financial spaces developed in response to sustainable development objectives. By alternative monetary and financial spaces, we mean those spaces that are distinct, in degree or in kind, from the traditional monetary and financial spaces associated with the nation- state or built on the same logic, such as the Eurozone.


Given the contradictory nature of the ongoing digitalisation processes, this workshop proposes to open the discussion on the extent to which the digitalisation of local alternative monetary and financial spaces is likely to strengthen the economic and social cohesion of their agents or, symmetrically, challenge the economic and social cohesion associated with the nation-state.


It will grapple with this crucial question, particularly focusing on three intersecting axes:


(1) Money, finance, and digitalization.

(2) Money, finance, and commons.

(3) Money, finance, and territories.

The workshop will talk place at Université Grenoble Alpes. Keynote speakers include Georgina Gomez (International Institute of Social Studies, Erasmus University Rotterdam) and Eva Julin (Bank of Sweden).

The application deadline is  15 January 2022. The full call for papers is available here.
