|Description:||International workshop on "Economic Sociology and Sociology of Economic Thought: Lessons from the Ongoing Crisis"|
|Location:||Jena, University of Jena, Kolleg Postwachstumsgesellschaften, Germany|
|Subject:||We welcome contributions that deal with the following themes: - While various sociological branches engaging with the economy prospered during the last decades, systematic sociological research on economics and economic knowledge is still at its infancy. A neglected topic in the classical sociology of knowledge as well as in the classical sociology of science, we invite the submission of proposals that address (academic) economics as a genuine topic of sociological inquiry. - With respect to the crisis, especially the otherwise flourishing field of New Economic Sociology has for the most part remained silent. We encourage the submission of contributions that focus on the inherent crisis-dynamics of modern capitalist economies, either sociologically or by engaging in innovative interdisciplinary contact with non-mainstream branches in economics.
