New blog post on networks

Sebastian Möller has written a new blog post for “Manchester Capitalism: A View From The North”. In his contribution “Mapping & Understanding the Networked Character of Finance”, he summarizes the “Networks in Finance Workshop” held last December in Manchester. This workshop was organized by Adam Leaver and Daniel Tischer from the Manchester Business School. On this occasion, scholars from different fields of study have discussed the roles of networks in different areas of finance and the value of network analysis for understanding ongoing processes and dynamics. At this workshop, also Sebastian Botzem presented a paper co-authored by Natalia Besedovsky on the reconfiguration of the global financial elite. The blog post provides a brief overview of the different projects presented in Manchester and sketches out some routes for further research.
