Conference CFP: Household finance in an unequal world, December 2024

Household finance in an unequal world: Social approaches.
Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, Halle, 5-6 December 2024.

The Emmy Noether Research Group on “Peripheral Debt: Money, Risk and Politics in Eastern Europe” is inviting paper proposals for a conference on household finance.

We invite contributions studying household finance from all disciplines and perspectives that engage with its fundamentally social nature and study empirically the social practices, relations, institutions and meanings implicated in individuals’ and households’ use of financial products, services and instruments for both credit and investment purposes in all geographic and social settings. We are particularly interested in contributions that thematize the household as the object of analysis and/or pay attention to the geographically unequal and uneven patterns of household finance. The conference is aimed also at producing a subsequent joint publication with interested participants.

Deadline for abstracts is 14 July 2024. More information available in call for papers.
