ANTHR 6450 - [Social Studies of Economics and Finance]

Fall. Next offered 2018-2019. 4 credits. Student option grading.

H. Miyazaki.

This course has two purposes. The first is to examine recent efforts to extend theoretical insights from the social studies of science to studies of the market. The second is to consider the implications of these efforts for anthropological critiques of capitalism and neoliberal reforms. Topics of investigation include the relationship between theory and practice in the market, the emergence of risk as a calculable entity and the place of the category of the social in knowledge about the market.
