First Doctoral Conference on the Social and Political Constitution of the Economy

Online conference, March 24−26, 2021
 

The International Max Planck Research School on the Social and Political Constitution of the Economy (IMPRS-SPCE) is hosting the First Doctoral Conference on the Social and Political Constitution of the Economy. The event 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 from an audience of peers.

The virtual conference is organized by the doctoral researchers of the IMPRS-SPCE. This graduate program combines approaches from economic sociology, organizational sociology, and comparative and international political economy. Its research explores the relationship between the modern econo-my and its social and political foundations. For further information see http://imprs.mpifg.de.

Reflecting the School’s broad multi- and interdisciplinary program, the three-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 mu-tual interdependence and complex interactions between the economy and society by providing a plat-form for interdisciplinary exchange on topics such as (but not limited to):

  • Democracy, Representation, and Populism
  • Economic and Financial Policymaking
  • Inequality and Stratification
  • Labor Market Actors, Institutions, and Policies
  • Market Sociology
  • Migration and Immigrant Populations
  • Social Movements and Non-Governmental Actors

The conference will be held online, March 24–26, 2021. In addition to six panel sessions, there will be a keynote lecture, virtual coffee breaks and get-togethers. Despite its digital format, the desired spirit of the conference will be one of close interaction and discus-sion. We would therefore like to emphasize that participation is strongly encouraged and expected throughout the whole schedule. We will make every effort to have enjoyable digital coffee breaks and to have conversations and meeting points as if it was a non-digital session.
