The Warwick Critical Finance Manuscript Development Workshop 2.0 took place on 18 February 2021, with participation of two DEEPEN members, Philipp Golka and Hayley James.
The second workshop of this type held by WCF, the aim of the workshop was to support early career researchers in getting manuscripts ready for publication by providing detailed feedback through a mock peer-review process. Twenty researchers from universities across Europe and US took part in the workshop.
Philipp presented a paper entitled ‘Framing, relational work and infrastructure in financialization processes: the case of social impact investing.’, which provides an empirical study of investors’ various attempts to forging relations with other actors in the creation of new financial markets.
Hayley presented a paper entitled ‘The gendered construction of risk in asset accumulation for retirement’, a collaboration with Ariane Agunsoye (Goldsmiths, University of London), which considers how gender norms influence the way men and women perceive and respond to risk when accumulating assets for later life.
The Warwick Critical Finance (WCF) Group is a study group based at the PAIS department of the University of Warwick which takes a critical approach to new and emerging trends in finance.
