RN09 – Economic Sociology

Maria Nawojczyk maria@list.pl University of Science and Technology, Krakow, Poland

The network’s objective is to promote the field in its entirety and welcomes any paper reporting on new empirical insights and new theoretical insights. However, today’s rapidly evolving and highly uncertain economic realities put these theories to a challenging test. Are they up to the task of thorough understanding market transitions in post-communist and third-world countries, the continuing global financial crisis, or the new modern forms of calculability, governance, and social control? Does the proliferation of online purchases and Internet social networking sites radically alter the very notion of market? Do sociological theories and empirical studies of economic phenomena providing a critical insight to social reality.

Thank you very much to all participants for making esa torino an outstanding conference.
