Households and Peripheral Financialisation in Europe
- the household as a social unit, object of financial technologies, and theoretical, analytical and statistical construct;
- social relations and categories overlapping, crosscutting or enveloping the household (family, community, gender, class, status, generation, civic organisations, networks);
- regimes of value within and outside of the household;
- financial household property and liabilities – structural, spatial and historical variations;
- housing and welfare provision and life-cycle management;
- household-level decision-making and strategies.
Abstracts of up to 250 words should be sent to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 October 2017. Decisions will be made by 30 November 2017. We expect all speakers to participate in the full programme of the conference and to submit their revised papers for publication in an edited collection or special journal issue(s). Speakers’ travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by the Max Planck Institute if they cannot access other sources of funding. Please do not hesitate to contact the convenors with any queries.
