The 2010 Interim Conference of the Research Network of Economic Sociology

Call for papers "Towards an economic sociology of the current economic

The current economic crisis raises fundamental questions for economic
sociologists. These are questions that range from the sociology of finance
more narrowly defined to other areas like social capital, valuation,
status, stigma, trust, performativity, and cultural forms, as well as
issues relating to the broader impact of the crisis such as the euro,
housing markets, economic migration - all seem crucial for a substantive
sociological understanding of the crisis. This interim conference invites
paper proposals that help us to understand the crisis from a sociological
point of view.

The conference will take place at the 5th and 6th December 2010 at the
Mövenpick Hotel in Bielefeld (Germany). The Conference will be conducted
in English.
