Women, money, and markets (1600-1900).
University of Zurich, 10-12 June 2020
Barbara Straumann and her colleagues at the University of Zurich are hosting another conference on women, money, and markets next year.
As in previous years, the conference will address women’s relationship to money and their participation in trade, banking, finance, forms of investment, speculation, gambling, consumerism, business and household management, wage labour, care work, charity and various other practices of exchange. The conference is interdisciplinary in nature, bridging literature, material culture, gender studies, economic history and feminist economics, and aims to relate the debates of past periods to modern-day issues concerning the presence and position of women in the economy and media.
The application deadline is 10 February 2020. The full call for papers is available here.
