Critical Finance Studies


Critical finance scholars are accustomed to questioning the dominant narratives that surround finance. Often, they challenge the belief that finance could be beneficial to society, if only it were regulated effectively – and if only everyone had sufficient financial knowledge.

Members of the Conceptualizing Blockchains research group will present at the 12th Annual Critical Finance Studies Conference. This event will take place online on 27th– 28th August 2020, and will be focused at new forms of financial networks and institutions through the lens of critical studies.

The online format of the conference will also allow experimental forms of presentation: online discussions of draft papers, audio and video recordings.

Keynote speakers are Gargi Bhattacharyya, Professor of Sociology at the Centre for Migration, Refugees and Belonging of the University of East London, and Annie McClanahan, Associate Professor of English at the University of California, Irvine. This event became possible thanks to the Political Economy Research Centre, Goldsmiths, and the Digital Worldmaking Research Stream, Goldsmiths.

More information about the conference can be found in its call for papers.
