The call for abstracts/paper proposals for the 3rd interdisciplinary market studies workshop is now out.

The workshop will be held in The Couvent Royal de Saint Maximin la Sainte Baume, near Aix en Provence, France, on June 5 and 6 2014.

Invited guest speakers will be Jane Guyer (Professor of Anthropology, Johns Hopkins, US) and Don Slater (Reader of Sociology, London School of Economics, UK).

While papers considering any market phenomena empirically or conceptually are welcome, we particularly invite contributions that address one of the following three interrelated themes:

– The role of creativity and narratives in shaping markets
– Personhood and market subjects
– Market empowerment

Deadline for submitting a 3-page abstract/paper proposal is January 31st 2014. More details and the full Call for Papers can be downloaded here.
