Second Doctoral Conference on the Social and Political Constitution of the Economy
Conference | October 27–28, 2022
The Second Doctoral Conference on the Social and Political Constitution of the Economy aims at building bridges and finding commonalities among young scholars whose research is addressing the complex linkages between economic and social action. It will give PhD students at all stages the opportunity to present their work and receive constructive and well-informed feedback.
The conference is organized by the doctoral researchers of the International Max Planck Research School on the Social and Political Constitution of the Economy (IMPRS-SPCE), a graduate program that combines approaches from economic sociology, organizational sociology, and comparative and international political economy. Its research explores the relationship between the modern economy and its social and political foundations.
Reflecting the School’s broad multi- and interdisciplinary program, the two-day conference will bring together junior researchers in the fields of economic sociology, political economy, organization studies, and related disciplines. It aims to foster dialogue and promote synergies among those studying the mutual inter-dependence and complex interactions between the economy and society by providing a platform for interdisciplinary exchange on topics such as (but not limited to):
- Democracy, representation, and populism
- Digital policymaking and the digital economy
- Economic and financial policymaking
- Inequality and stratification
- Labor market actors, institutions, and policies
- Market sociology
- Migration andimmigrant populations
- Politics, society, and economy in the non-Western world
- Social movements and non-governmental actors
