The role of the future in economic and political sociology: Between stabilizing expectations and extending crises

This seminar, organised on 24-26 September 2018 in Cologne by the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies (MPIfG) and by the Max Planck Sciences Po Center on Coping with Instability in Market Societies (MaxPo), explored the interest in the future in the social sciences. The importance of actors in the future, the influence of the future, the influence of the future, and the future of the future capitalist development. Other strands of literature in economic geography, anthropology, and history have been developed and used by the authors, as they are predicted and scenarios, as the instruments of market making and the contributors to the crafting of economic interests over time. The seminar aimed to familiarize PhD students with this emerging research agenda. (Click here [PDF] for the full program).
