CFP: Finance and society conference 2024

Finance and society conference 2024.
University of Sheffield, 12-13 September.

We are delighted to announce that the finance and society conference this year will take place in Sheffield, UK. The call for papers is now open and can be found here.

The settlement between finance and society continues to come under strain from multiple directions: climate change, geopolitical rivalries, powerful new technologies, resurgent nationalism, cost of living crises. Whilst there is widespread acknowledgment that governments and corporations will have to adjust their strategies in fundamental ways to meet these challenges, willingness to depart from ‘business as usual’ is in short supply. What will be the likely consequences of this dynamic stasis? How will the so-called polycrisis of the present impact the shape of financial society and its future course?

As in previous years, we are looking forward to receiving innovative paper and panel abstracts from across the full spectrum of ‘finance and society’ studies. The application deadline is 1 May 2024. Further guidelines and a more detailed list of proposed topics are outlined in the call for papers.
