This year’s theme: Sociology of finance
For decades now, finance has been an object of intellectual interest anD examination for disciplines outside financial economics: psychology, sociology, history, anthropology, or literature. While cross-pollinations between financial economics and psychology have led to the rise of behavioural finance, other social science disciplines have taken different trajectories. Among these disciplines, the sociology of finance deserves to be singled out. While claiming an intellectual tradition going back to at least Max Weber, until the mid-1980s there were next to no sociological investigations of finance. Over the course of the next three decades, we have seen the sociology of finance becoming a burgeoning subfield of sociology. It is time not only to acknowledge the contribution sociology has made to the study of finance, but also to open the door to a dialogue across the social sciences, between financial economics, psychology, and sociology.
