Transactions: Critical Studies in Finance, Economy and Theory is a new series published by Duke University Press, edited by Melinda Cooper and Martijn Konings. On this site you can find some information about the project, and over the next years we will be developing it into an intellectual resource to accompany the series as it evolves, featuring discussions of books that appear in the series and potentially facilitating other forms of discussion.
Recent events such as the global financial crisis and the Occupy Wall Street Movement have created a unique environment for critical thinking on finance, debt and money, and Transactions will publish and promote books that advance the understanding of the role of money and finance in contemporary life. This includes work that employs new or unexplored theoretical resources to rethink key economic categories and themes, genealogies of economic ideas and institutions, and conceptually informed historical and empirical work. The bulk of contributions to Transactions will consists of single-authored books, with co-authored books included as appropriate, and the series will feature both established and emerging authors.
Please see this page for the intellectual framing of the series and the specific contribution it aims to make. We welcome enquiries: if you have an idea for a book, a book proposal or a full-fledged manuscript that you think would fit well with, please get in touch!
