Fourth annual workshop on the “History of ‘economics as culture’ (Histoire culturelle des savoirs économiques)”
This workshop is bringing together scholars from different disciplines such as economics, history, art and literary theory, science and technology studies – this list is not exclusive – to discuss, from an historical vantage point, the place of economics in our culture. Below are some suggestions of topics that exemplify what will be at issue: - Discussions of the interactions between art, literature and economics; for example how artists, writers have articulated more or less elaborate representations of what was the economy and/or political economy and/or some part of these. - Studies of the interactions between cultural or artistic objects such as magazines, books, maps, photographs, paintings, graphs and economic thinking. Also, we encourage scholars to consider economic texts as cultural items, reflecting upon the consequences their form had on their reception. - The depiction of economics as part of cultures (political, commercial, scientific, etc.) of past (including very recent past) societies; in particular, discussions of economic representations (or culture) of specific social groups such as merchants, workers, businessmen, etc.
