Please join us for this exciting virtual event on Monday, June 12 from 12pm to 3pm ET. Financial sociologists contribute important insights to analyses of today’s political economy. This event brings the authors of recent books – all published since 2020 – into three panel conversations. The first panel will explore the role of morality in legal gray areas within financial markets that are variously considered to have normative import or not. In the second panel, authors will discuss how central bankers and organizers of financial markets make their projects visible to some members of society but not others. The third and final panel will ask which elements of the current financial system are roadblocks on the path to a new political economy, and which ones can be leveraged to achieve a more equitable, inclusive, and sustainable society.
