Call for Papers: Imagining the Future: Financial Capitalism & the Social Imagination
UCL Institute of Advanced Studies // 11 July 2017
– Professor Ruth Levitas (Bristol)
– Professor Jens Beckert (Cologne)
We invite abstract submissions (up to 300 words) which explore the various ‘intersections’ between political, economic and social imaginaries of financial capitalism. We are especially interested in theoretically-driven approaches studying the role of different types of imagination in materially mediating currently experienced crises (economic, social, border, migration etc.), through producing and legitimating dominant visions and narratives of the future.
