The Global Network on Financial Geography (FinGeo) is organizing its Second Summer School, virtually from June 21 to June 24, 2021. The school will take place over four hours each day (9am-1pm EST, 2pm-6pm BST, 9pm-1am CST) with social time reserved before and after sessions.
The FinGeo Summer School will be focused on cutting edge themes at the intersection between finance and geography. Financial geography has never been as important as economies around the world are being reshaped in response to social, economic and environmental change. The FinGeo Summer School will offer an Early Career program aimed at advanced methodological training and reflexive peer debate that intends to aid the consolidation of an emerging global community of financial geographers. Therefore, the attendees will be engaged across a wide variety of research themes, theoretical perspectives, and methodologies towards studying the relations between finance and space. The program includes Methods Master Classes, Keynotes, Reading and Discussion Seminars, Peer Review Sessions, Career Development Sessions, and Social Events.
The summer school is sponsored by The Regional Studies Association and co-organized by David Bassens (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), Theodor Cojoianu (University College Dublin), Michael Grote (Frankfurt School of Finance & Management), Janelle Knox-Hayes (MIT, DUSP), Dariusz Wójcik (Oxford University), Siqi Zheng (MIT, CRE), and Matthew Zook (University of Kentucky). The Summer School’s advisory board further includes Manuel Aalbers (KU Leuven), Sabine Dörry (Luxembourg), Karen Lai (Durham), Fenghua Pan (Beijing Normal University), and Martin Sokol (Trinity College Dublin).
The application deadline is May 15, 2021. More information about the program can be found here
