Workshop: Social Studies of the Economy in Latin America, UCL July 1

[El 1 de Julio se llevará a cabo el workshop: “Social Studies of the Economy in Latin America” en UCL-Londres. Un excelente programa lleno de contribuidores de este blog]  

In recent years there has been a renewed interest in research offering a close-up examination of economic life. In particular, ethnographic research has increasingly shed light on the multiple ways in which economy, culture and technology intersect, and in which the economy as an object is constituted and performed. Fertile inquiry has been conducted into the world of economic policy-making and expertise, the media’s role in the public economic discussion, the configuration of markets and economic subjects, the nature of economic calculation and its material devices, and the variety of economic knowledges, among other topics. This workshop will focus on the social studies of the economy in Latin America. It aspires to bring together a plurality of perspectives on the social nature of the economy in the region, and to discuss the advantages, limitations and challenges of the social studies of the economy for understanding Latin America’s political economy.

When: Friday 1st, July 2016. Where: Department of Science and Technology Studies, UCL. Continue reading

Espero con mi breve y limitado comentario contribuir positivamente a la discusión generada por Nicholas D’Avella meses atrás en Estudios de la Economía y poder seguir de este modo intercambiando ideas con investigadores interesados en el tema.
