14th Annual Critical Finance Studies Conference 2023
Institute for Mediterranean Studies
Rethymno, Crete, June 21-23
See the full Call for Papers here.
We invite contributions to our ongoing collaborative research project that seeks to engage finance in new and critical ways. Although critical attention is regularly devoted to finance, it generally takes the form of a call for transparency, or the systemic repair and restructuring of a paradigm in need of a shift. While finance is clearly a societal domain ridden with crisis, our sense of critique embraces the possibility of risky confrontations with the external powers that drive finance, as well as with internal, ethical combats that impact on the critic’s own situation within academic discourses on finance. We are, therefore, calling for contributions that take into account the relationship of the critic to finance and to discourses on finance, including received values, moral codes, authoritarian knowledge, common sense, good will, opinion and implicit presuppositions. We also invite papers that approach finance through avenues that have been underexplored such as theology, philosophy, art, music, literature, film, new media and television, to give just a few examples.
Please submit abstracts for individual papers or panels (no more than 500 words) to Joyce Goggin (firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 1, 2023.
