Papers that explore the links between finance, financialization, and the growing inequality in wealth and income are welcome. Pundits around the world attribute the rise of populist nationalist governments to the severity of the financial crisis. The most common mechanism cited is the way in which the severity of the crisis differentially affected working class households. Emerging populist nationalist regimes have successful linked that disgust to anti-immigrant sentiment. Her researches focus on the history of future research, prediction, futurology and futures studies in the global field, and investigates the circulation and constitution of future expertise in the post war period, and the role of prediction as a source of governmentality.

He recently opened a field work on global food security issues, with a focus on the scenario analysis tools designed by agro-economists to model the long term future of agriculture. Melissa Fisher is a cultural anthropologist who writes on finance, feminism, and the workplace.

Fisher has given numerous key notes and conference talks nationally and internationally. Her book on Wall Street women received over twenty-five reviews in academic journals. She also played an advisory role in the first female financial thriller film: Equity, a Sony Classic Pictures release Fisher earned her Ph.
His research applies economic sociology, organizational sociology and sociological theory to the study of macroeconomic forecasting. This miniconference aims to explore the role played by predictive instruments such as scenarios, forecasts, or Delphi panels in creating visions of socio economic futures across global space.
It seeks, in particular, to understand how predictive technologies are not only performative devices as shown by STS scholars but also carry important legacies of global expertise and ambitions of control that extend both in time and space. By integrating arguments from history and economic history, the mini conference seeks to explore the links between the future visions carried by such technologies, and specific forms of globalistic expertise such as global consultants, forecasters and scenario makers.
The aim of the mini conference is therefore to tie together emerging strands of thinking from financial sociology and anthropology economic history and sociology, around futures as not only visions and images of coming time, but as highly material expectations and even forms of extension of future interest. Our scope is both theoretical and empirical in aim. Drawing on a range of methods including ethnography and intellectual history, we seek to contextualize and problematize concepts such as expectations, risk and uncertainty, and we seek to show the complex histories and socio economic contexts of predictive tools and their geopolitical agendas.
By so doing we seek to reinvest the future with the problem of power and understand future expectations and images as results of power struggles between economic actors, markets, states, culture and interests. Contributions addressing the following thematic strands are particularly welcome although contributions exploring other related questions will be considered :.
Anticipations of the future involve a set of tools and calculative technologies, most of them relying on expertise and making use of specific data and inputs, but most of which also have a very specific history.
This history can be traced to new forms of future speculation based on computer powered tools and algorithmic reasoning, but also to efforts to reinvent and extend the scope of planning, and not least to new rationalities of governmentality and management profoundly inspired by global corporations facing uncertainties related to an unpredictable process of globalization from the s on. We encourage papers that explore this situated socio economic and cultural contexts of predictive technologies over time and their link to historic impressions of global space. We are also interested in papers that consider the relationship between the global and local contexts.
Forecasting expertise : Which are the groups and actors that produce and use predictive technologies and is there a particular kind of forecasting or future expert? On what forms of epistemological underpinning is such forecasting expertise created and maintained? How are forms of legitimacy constructed around forms of knowledge that are necessarily of speculative kind, but that can nevertheless be underpinned with complex forms of data and objective representation?
The development of foreknowledge or -guessing for regulation emphasizes connections between socio-economics and science and technology studies, and leads to an interrogation on the social and cultural under which expertise is regarded as reliable. Such future visions appear to emanate from specific sites and places, ranging from the World Economic Forum or Wall Street to Silicon Valley.
How are claims as to the coming, often projected as dramatically different, capitalist future constructed and projected? My research interrogates questions of development in the context of globalization, transnational trading networks and labour. More specifically, I focus on the role of nation states in governing labour, and how public regulations interact with lead-firm driven private codes of conduct and civil society initiatives across geographical scales. Another strand of my research explores labour agency, and the evolving strategies adopted by workers in contesting their conditions in global production networks GPNs.
Having secured a large Economic and Social Research Council ESRC grant with colleagues at the University of Manchester, I will advance this agenda by exploring public-private governance dynamics in regional value chains driven by Southern lead firms across sub-Saharan Africa. She is interested in environmental innovations and environmental upgrading, and on the evolution of Italian industrial districts and small and medium sized firms within global value chains. Global value chain GVC analysis has reached a milestone with over twenty years of research. An analytical framework for understanding the global fragmentation of manufacturing and services as key processes of globalization, GVC research has helped us conceptualize and anticipate a variety of im-pacts, opportunities and challenges, posed by global industries on firms, workers, local communities, natural environments and national developmental paths.
A series of forthcoming books on GVCs take stock of the breadth of research conducted thus far and consolidates key contributions, laying a basis for future research into the impact of these global processes on our economies, politics, and societies across scales and geographical locations De Marchi, Di Maria, and Gereffi ; Gereffi, Ponte, and Raj-Reichert ; Gereffi ; Ponte A key characteristic of analytical progression in the GVC domain is its inter-disciplinary openness to research for example in Economic Geography and International Business, amongst others.
We are interested in papers on the following key themes which are innovative in their scope, methods, and ideas. We are particularly interested in inter-disciplinary contributions.

His research interests are: the cultural and communicational forms of reflexivity, the effects of cultural eclecticism on digital practices, the hybridization of cultural forms and observable remediations, particularly with regard to public reading, encounter sites and video gaming. By analyzing various digital systems he has sought to better understand the processes of innovation, reception and sharing of digital objects and works. His current research work focuses on third places and libraries updating and reflecting on works done in the s on the introduction of digital media to the supply of documents and associated practice.
Past or ongoing publications reflect these concerns, as well as those relating to reflexivity and innovation in the field of video games first-person shooter or musical video games. The mini-conference focuses on the new forms that shape the Do-It-Yourself movement nowadays. Makerspaces, hackerspaces, fabLabs, techshops are some of them which, from the markets or their margins, redesign the borders of socioeconomic reality and experiment new ways of making social worlds.
Makerspaces appeared spontaneously and maintained themselves for a long time. What then makes them arise? Do they continue previous forms of sociocultural or socioeconomic organizations? This suggests that they can play a significant role in the resilience of inhabitants after a crisis. But that would not explain why they maintain and sometimes even develop themselves then.
Despite contextual elements, past and present, it is therefore necessary to grasp the proper logic of development of these social forms and the way they produce their justifications: from new global hacker culture to local community education or working based learning. Their references also could be very different depending on whatever they produce, recycle or fix.
Public policies now often encourage the creation and development of this kind of third places. In this case, we could then look at what is expected by local authorities. Makerspaces develop themselves by forming a dense but diversified network cluster? We can then try to understand what connects these different experiences, through space and time. We could be interested in examining their trajectory, training course and experiences… Including in other networks, elsewhere.
A similar approach of those who participate to their workshops is possible as well. Other resources, material and non-material, also circulate between different places. How do these non-monetary markets actually work in terms of exchanges, valuation, etc.? How are they connected to each other, including internationally? Finally, what do the outcome of the whole system consist in and how evaluate it, individually and collectively.
In this regard, we could pay particular attention not only to the transfer of skills to the inhabitants, but their global empowerment. The logic of bricolage involves the articulation of heterogeneous materials and know-hows as well as various forms of collaboration and co-working we could describe. Consequently, the DIY movement blurs several traditional boundaries of economic systems. As makers produce items and share competences on their free time without economic benefits, their activities reconfigure links between work and non-work, commercial and non-commercial activities.
Boundaries between institutional and non-institutional frames could also be addressed and different social and political claims as well. For example, some makerspaces add gender concerns to their libertarian identity. Do these processes prevent some makerspaces from becoming more inclusive or do they allow them to evolve towards new definitions of community and democracy?
He is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Anthropology at the New School for Social Research and head of humanities and social sciences at the School of Form design program. He is currently writing on the rise of mortgage credit in Poland. His research interests include sociological theory, temporal order of markets, digital platforms, and human ecology.
She currently investigates the dynamics of future expectations in moments of economic and political crisis. The rise of capitalist modes of production revolutionized the temporal order of traditional societies. The future has emerged as the major temporal reference for social and economic life, becoming ever more open, contingent, and uncertain. Time itself has become an object of commodification, power struggles and new differentiations. However, the emergence of this new temporal order did not mean the disappearance of other cyclical forms of time.
The proposed mini-conference takes up these classic concerns of sociology and transposes them to the current phase of capitalism. It is interested in the distorting effects of new capitalist developments for the temporal order of 21st century societies. How do processes of globalization, digitalization, or financialization affect the ways time and the future are conceived?
How are these transformations related to the multiple rhythms structuring modern societies? What are the structural temporal conflicts between the economy and other social spheres? And what technologies do actors use to manage these conflicts? Contributions addressing the following thematic strands or related perspectives are particularly welcome:. The assessment of these transformations is of particular importance, as capitalism risks destroying its own temporal foundations. Innovation, entrepreneurship and investment, the backbones of traditional capitalism, all require the confidence in an open future full of opportunities and the capability to envision and project long term perspectives.
How do algorithms and new data-based modes of prediction render futures less open? Is financialization increasing the speed and accelerating social live? Are actors in a globalized, flexibilzed economy still confident they stand to take control of their futures? How do the changing dynamics of capitalism relate to the multiple rhythms structuring modern societies?
What are the assonances and dissonances between biographical time of the life course and the cycles of finance? What is the conflict between the short-term profit of financialized capitalism and its long-term externalities, including the deep futures of Anthropocene? How are they adjusted and how do they diverge? How do current developments increase or relax existing desynchronization? How do people cope with divergent rhythms of social life as they try to manage their work-life balance?
What role do professionals play in managing temporal conflicts on the individual level e. By what devices are temporal conflicts reduced at societal level e. Finally, what is the role of different digital technologies calendars, collaboration software, trading terminals, smartphone applications etc. He is a member of both the Political Science primary and the Sociology courtesy departments.
Herrigel has published widely on industrial change and economic development in Europe, the United States, Japan and China. His work is qualitative, combining historical analysis, ethnography and interview-based case studies with social theoretical concerns for relationality and process. Along with many articles and book chapters, he is author of: Industrial Constructions.
She publishes in the sociological areas of unintended consequences, possibility, ignorance, failure and diffusion of innovations. Her research sites comprise the refugee crisis in Central and Eastern Europe, the paraformal practices in the financial sector in Poland, the wearing of protective gear in boxing, and the management of stray dog population in Romania. Currently, she is working on a book on the role of futures thinking and foresight methodologies in social and political change efforts focused on democracy, development, peacebuilding and climate change.
She focuses in particular on the use of participatory scenario methods by democratic reform actors in the Global South, as well as on their links to transnational networks of sponsors and partners. Her first book, Partisan Publics: Communication and Contention Across Brazilian Youth Activist Networks Princeton University Press, , examined civic and political networks of Brazilian youth activism during the re-democratization period.
She has also written about the role anti-partisanship in the recent Brazilian protest wave. She has also written theoretical articles on agency, culture, networks, temporality, and social interaction. Social action, entrepreneurship and decision-making are increasingly depicted as taking place in a context of possibility, alternatives, and opportunities waiting to be revealed. This discourse is associated with hope, creativity and adventure, and is backed up by contemporary advances in technology, which render the contemplation of possible worlds more and more widespread.
The spectrum of what is possible helps to advance alternative economic activities sharing or cooperative economies , nonconventional entrepreneurship, original forms of adaptation, social and technological innovations, social movements, and even new types of governance infused with hope. Hence, engaging the possible can be a tool to reduce or, at least, challenge social inequalities.
At the same time, however, visions of the possible can generate disappointment regarding less advantageous or unexpected developments. These might include, for instance, claims regarding the failure to anticipate episodes of crisis financial, migratory etc. These developments infuse the exploration and transformation of the possible with urgency, pressing policymakers, scientists and citizens to imagine alternative scenarios and push the boundaries of what people consider to be plausible and desirable futures.
The invocation of what is possible can also lead to the reification of future scenarios, and to subsequent fatigue. On the other hand, it is the subject of political struggles, and thus the reification or transformation of possible futures is always consequential to the present. The mini-conference invites papers exploring the dynamics of the possible in the contemporary world.
The intuition guiding this discussion is that there is more than one logic of what is possible. Possible worlds reveal themselves in relation to social structure, economic situation, habitus, power, and politics. This mini-conference aims to explore in what directions the possible is leading us in the contemporary world. We will discuss how it enables or blocks individual and collective action; how it contributes to political struggles; how it provides templates for social policy; and how it re-arranges temporalities across social fields.
We will also consider the conditions that lead to the exhaustion of possible futures. Finally, we will discuss the most suitable sociological theories and research methods that scholars can use to investigate possible worlds. Researcher at CNPq since Experience in Economics, with emphasis in Economic Theory, acting mainly in the following subjects: development economics, economic policies and Brazilian economy.
Post-doctoral program in Economics at Cambridge University and Ph. Former Visiting Scholar at Leiden University Co-editor and author of some books and author and co-author of articles published in Brazilian and international journals. He focuses his researches in the following subjects: i macroeconomic aspects of International trade and finance; ii globalization; iii economic integration; iv economic development.
Recent papers are: Business cycle convergence and trade: Brazil and China in a changing world Journal of Economic Policy Reform ; Brazilian countercyclical economic policies as a response to the Great Recession: a critical analysis and an alternative proposal to ensure macroeconomic stability Journal of Post Keynesian Economics. I have recently extended my interest on Labor Relations, particularly about labor mobility and income distribution in Brazil. Following the economic growth with income distribution and poverty reduction period that characterized in the initial years of the millennium, the Great Recession of forced most countries in the region into adopting economy austerity measures.
Also, a new international economic scenario, with a growing economic protectionism trend, led these countries into an economic, political and social uncertainty. Thus, the initial economic boom in the first decade of the 21st century have not reduced their structural imbalances and institutional deficiencies. At the same time, all those challenges have emerged in the context of change in the information and communication technologies ICT and in the use of artificial intelligence AI. These factors are beginning to have significant effects in all areas of social organizations -such as, production processes, labor-market relations — as well as affecting economic policies determination, the working of institutions and the state itself.
Additionally, they are even putting democracy as a reliable political system at risk. Although it seems clear that Iberian-America countries are undergoing a process of transformation in all the spheres that constitute and regulate socio-economic relations, its main trends are not, at least so far. On the contrary, there is a great uncertainty. Following his studies of economics, political science and sociology he obtained a doctorate in economics at Goethe University Frankfurt summa cum laude.
His research is primarily concerned with the institutional dynamics of capitalist development, involving the matter of entrepreneurship, innovation and economic policy, paralleled by an interest in the history of economic and social theory. Over the years, this transdisciplinary conversation between economics and sociology has been submerged by academic differentiation.
Sociology has provided the breeding ground for a new kind of economic sociology that addresses the social fabric of capitalist market economies. Yet its conversation with economics has been hindered by the fact that the mainstream of neoclassical economics resembles a kind of economic physics that tends to eschew the dialogue with sociology. Revisiting the intellectual project of socio-economics therefore requires a revitalization of the conversation between economic sociology and those non-neoclassical strands of economics that are usually labelled as heterodox, reaching across the theoretical as well as normative and political spectrum from Marxian and Postkeynesian via institutional and evolutionary to Austrian economics.
Adding to the rejection of neoclassical equilibrium analyses, their common ground lies in a shared vision of capitalist market economies as shaped by uncertainty, instability, novelty, conflict, and persistent change. Crucially, this vision of economic affairs also characterises the major strands of economic sociology. Key questions to be explored are as follows:.
To explore these and related questions, papers that present original and unpublished content are invited for submission. Particularly welcome are papers which take on a comparative theoretical perspective that is rooted in contemporary theorising or in the history of ideas. In addition to that, also contributions concerned with comparative methodological discussions are invited for submission. Furthermore, papers which shed light on the above questions by utilising empirical material or historical reasoning are of course also welcome as contributions.

Computational techniques including machine learning, big data analysis and artificial intelligence are disrupting established methods of data collection and analysis in the social sciences. Researchers are also questioning the social, cultural and political impacts of data-driven technologies in hiring and employment, medicine, finance, and criminal justice, among many other areas of social life. On one hand, algorithms represent new data-intensive mechanisms for coping and counterbalancing unequal structures of opportunities and power.
On the other side, new data tools could exacerbate existing social, economic and political hierarchies under a guise of technocratic neutrality. Society could potentially derive enormous benefits from new kinds of data, but challenges persist. For example, in healthcare algorithmic and AI systems could also lock-in existing accumulated advantages, open new divides, such as privacy or security, and create new patterns of privilege or exploitation.
This SASE mini-conference will focus on the organizational dynamics of algorithmic systems and artificial intelligence. We welcome submissions presenting empirical evidence or developing theoretical reflections on the intersection of socio-technical systems and organizational realities. Contributions are invited on a broad range of topics, including but not limited to the following:.
What socio-economic mechanisms contribute to the power of algorithms to reproduce and reinforce inequality and bias? Are there organizational processes or structures that mitigate or exacerbate algorithmic inequality? What new digital competences arise as different actors and stakeholders articulate their power and influence within algorithmic organizational settings? There is a potential for reconfiguration in power practices due to AI and algorithms promised capacity to substitute human experience, judgment and expertise, as organizational and social institutions try to adjust.
What emerging evidence do we have as these systems diffuse from the technology sector into more kinds of work, organizations and industries? What do scholars need to understand to build algorithmic systems to encourage creativity and collaboration among workers? How do different actors in an organization understand and use algorithms differently?
How do they adapt their daily practices in algorithmic settings and how do they modify, push back or resist algorithmic logics? What cross-country empirical evidence helps scholars to understand the emerging dynamics of these systems in a wider array of settings?

How has the rise in income and wealth inequality changed the role of consumption and status in the way class is constructed and narrated? How can neuroscience, macroeconomic modeling, ethnography, critical race theory and other modern approaches help us to gain new insights into the issues that Veblen explored in the first part of the twentieth century.

This panel will focus on how the nature of what the future holds may be enfolded in the present in registers that cannot necessarily or completely be articulated: the registers of bodies, emotions, affect, sensations, spaces, capacities, and the virtual.
We are interested in bringing together scholars whose work examines the way in which the feeling of the future exists in the work and labor of the present. All methodological and conceptual approaches are welcome. We hope to bring together scholars from multiple disciplines who share a common interest in the areas of what may be felt, to consider how our training and trajectories as researchers may lead to differing conceptualizations of these topics, but also to see what kinds of overlaps and compatibilities are generated by a more concrete concern with issues of work and labor.
