Abstract

The next Brown Bag Seminar will be at noon on April 13, 2016 at SFU Burnaby in the Mallinson Conference room, K8652. 

The title is: Financialization, Debt and Housing: Modes of Profit, Forms of Contestation, Projects for Research

There will be presentations by Graham Mackenzie, Didi Han, and Enda Brophy.

This session shares preliminary and ongoing research into three overlapping and increasingly controversial sources of accumulation: finance, debt and real estate. Graham Mackenzie considers the relationship between the commodity form and contemporary real estate markets. Didi Han describes the alternative financial institution Bin-Go in South Korea as a grounded endeavour in the reorientation of financial knowledge and practice. Enda Brophy outlines an inquiry exploring the contested connection between debt and ICTs within digital capitalism.    

Lunch will be provided.
