The Moral Sociology of the State: Thoughts about the Eurozone Crisis (Marion Fourcade)


Date: Feb 06, 2014

BEI Seminar with Marion Fourcade, Professor of Sociology, University of California at Berkeley.

Marion Fourcade received her PhD from Harvard University (2000) and taught at New York University and Princeton University before joining the Berkeley sociology department in 2003. A comparative sociologist by training and taste, she is interested in variations in economic and political knowledge and practice across nations. Her first book, Economists and Societies (Princeton University Press, 2009), explored the distinctive character of the discipline and profession of economics in three countries. She is now working on a second book, tentatively called Measure for Measure: Social Ontologies of Classification, which examines the cultural and institutional logic of what we may call “national classificatory styles” across a range of empirical domains.
