Critical Finance Studies conference

Welcome to the 10th Critical Finance Studies conference

The tenth annual Critical Finance Studies conference will be held at the School of Business, Economics and Law, University of Gothenburg, Sweden from Thursday 9th to Saturday 11th of August 2018.

The conference is part of an on-going project that seeks to engage with finance in critical and creative ways. Although critical attention is regularly devoted to finance, it usually takes the form of a call for transparency, regulation or restructuring. It also tends to centre on ‘high finance’ rather than processes of financialisation, a term coined by Randy Martin that has provided many themes for past Critical Finance Studies discussions. Contributions that engage with the discourse of financialisation, perhaps in unexpected spheres or through historical examples, are especially welcome, as are new approaches to ‘high finance.’

Program as of Aug. 7
