Spring Speaker Series 2024: “Market/Making: Knowledge, Technology, and the Production of Social Worlds “

February 5 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

On Monday, February 5, 2024, at 4pm, Assoc. Professor in Sociology, Juan Pablo Pardo-Guerra from the U of C, SD will speak at 4pm in the Nexus, Hayden Library, 14S-130 on the topic of “Market/Making: Knowledge, Technology, and the Production of Social Worlds.”  The talk is jointly sponsored talk with STS, Anthropology and History.  Here’s the abstract:  “Markets are central to contemporary social life. Yet, their features are often reduced to transactions and exchange, hiding the rich forms of sociotechnical and organizational work that are necessary for their making, maintenance, and reproduction. Explore these dimensions of markets through studies of two very different settings: stock exchanges, where ‘invisible’ organizational workers transformed the nature of trading and the social fabric of finance; and higher education, where scholars adopted forms of market-oriented quantification as mechanisms for sustaining their public value. More is revealed on the nature of markets in contemporary societies.”

The talk is free and open to the public. We hope to see you there!
