panel sessions. However, you may moderate or comment on a panel.
Some individuals may choose to be a silent auditor to a seminar. Slots for
auditors are limited; the enrollment process for interested auditors will only

applicants will be asked to submit a mini vita (no more than 1000 characters)

"Contemporary German Narratives of Economic Crisis and Ordnung"

Economics is fundamentally about storytelling. The noted German historian of
capitalism, Jürgen Kocka (2013), underscores how societies construct narratives
to legitimate models of economic order. Jost Hermand portrays in Das liebe Geld!
(2015) the literary and cultural construction of images, meanings, and stories
around the theme of wealth, as well as political and societal engagements with
economic Ordnung. As Richard Aitken argues in Performing Capital (2006), culture
and capitalism are fundamentally interwoven in the production of public (and
private) spaces where notions of national, international, and transnational
become discernible, debated, and defended. This seminar provides an intellectual
platform to discuss past and present narratives of economic crisis and Ordnung.
Scholars from interdisciplinary perspectives are invited to examine
commonalities and differences in these narratives that can assist in analyzing
their contents, as well as their national and international impacts. The seminar
is structured around three main themes: 1) participants' individual projects; 2)
recent theoretical, empirical, and analytical approaches to economic crisis and
Ordnung narratives; and 3) representations of economic crises and their
widespread effects. Participants will read and discuss texts by Kocka, Hermand,
Aitken, Joyce Appleby, Barry Eichengreen, Klaus Dörre, Ulrich Beck, Josef Vogl,
Deirdre McCloskey, Richard Thaler, Paul Virilio, and Lauren Berlant. All seminar
participants must provide a short overview of their scholarly interest in the
theme (approx. 500 words) by January 28 and select presenters must submit
completed papers by August 1. The conveners will circulate discussion questions
based on the readings and participants' research topics prior to the conference.
