University of Zurich,
As in previous years, the conference will address women’s relationship to money and their participation in trade, banking, finance, forms of investment, speculation, gambling, consumerism, business and household management, wage labour, care work, charity and various other practices of exchange. The conference is interdisciplinary in nature, bridging literature, material culture, gender studies, economic history and feminist economics, and aims to relate the debates of past periods to modern-day issues concerning the presence and position of women in the economy and media.
