The research group is organising a workshop on “Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Global Finance” with kindly support from the Center for Transnational Studies (ZenTra) and the Foundation of the University of Bremen taking place in September 2016 (21/09 – 23/09) in Bremen. The purpose of this workshop is to understand the complexities of global finance and to discuss the merit of interdisciplinary approaches to studying finance. We want to bring together junior scholars, PhD students as well as Post‐docs, and Junior Professors, with an interest in interdisciplinary exchange, that are conducting empirical research on all aspects of global finance. Moreover, we seek to identify common themes (empirical and methodological) as well as promising theoretical approaches across disciplines to come to a more encompassing understanding of global finance as a social and political phenomenon.
The Call for Papers has just been launched, we invite all interested scholars to submit paper proposals by May 20.
