Markets in the Making: Observing, Measuring and Performing Economic Exchange

Convenors
Liz McFall, Open University, UK, e.r.mcfall@open.ac.uk
Steven Kahl, University of Chicago, USA, steven.kahl@chicagobooth.edu
Joeri Mol, University of Melbourne, Australia, jmol@unimelb.edu.au

The questions we ask are:

  • Where do markets come from and what are their historical origins (Braudel, 1982; White, 1981)?
  • Who are the market makers and what role do expert systems play in economic exchange (Hsu, 2006; Riles, 2010)?
  • How do market devices perform economic exchange (Callon 2007, McFall, 2009)?
  • How do facts get produced and how are markets ‘prepared’ (Pryke et al., 2007)?
  • If we do not give primacy to the social (Maurer, 2008), how does materiality feature in and become generative of the way we enact economic exchange (Callon, 1998; MacKenzie et al., 2007)?
  • How does ‘number’ materialize in markets (cf. Verran, 2001)?
  • What is the epistemological and ontological status of ‘value’ as well as the market categories by which it is expressed (Boltanski & Thévenot, 2006; Kahl, 2007)?
  • How does economic exchange within organizational boundaries differ from economic exchange within markets (Mol & Wijnberg, 2011; Stark, 1986)?
