Special Topic: Fantasies of Finance
The financial crisis and global recession have demonstrated the social and political consequences of finance, while research in the sociology of markets, critiques of financialisation and social and cultural studies of finance have provided compelling understandings of the ideological fantasies that maintain the world of finance. This course explores these new approaches that emphasise the relationship between finance and society.
