FINGEO Global Seminar

Monday, 28 May, 2018 - 09:00 to Tuesday, 29 May, 2018 - 17:00
Campus: Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering campus

The theme of the Fifth FINGEO Global Seminar is “European Spaces of Financialization”. Organized on May 28-29 in Brussels, the main intellectual drive is to debate and learn how to critically analyze and understand Europe’s multiscalar spaces of financialization, their production, workings, effects, and importantly, their alternatives. We want to understand the socio-spatial drivers of financialization that produce inequality, growing household indebtedness, and the privatization of public services and support structures in the face of austerity politics. Participants in the Global Seminar are invited engage with the following financial geography themes: geographies of European integration, its offshore spaces and the wider state-finance nexus; the financialization of (non-) banking, finance and corporate enterprise; of boom-bust cycles; of politico-financial elites; of real estate, housing and households; geographies of sovereignty, austerity, resistance, debt, and so forth.
