CfP: (Dis)orders of Credit

6 10 2010

Peace Research Institute Oslo
27-28 January 2011
Keynote speaker: Urs Stäheli (Hamburg University)

The workshop seeks to address questions such as:  How does credit relate to risk and uncertainty in numerical and narrative accounting? What is the narrative and affective structure of the ‘futures’ mobilised in contemporary governance? What makes the real existing fictions of money, credit or the state credible, when do they fail and become ‘non-performative’? What cycles of fetishisation and dissociation do different parts of society and academia go through during and after the credit crisis? Can credit be said to be itself the product of a particular historical period, eg. Romanticism? How is the crisis affecting the liberal relationship between public credit and public fact?

Deadline: 15 October 2010
