Following on the collaborative scholarly walking tour of the financial zone of the City of London that Aris Komporozos-Athanasiou and I organized, many of the contributors to that event (and a few special guests) have prepared fascinating blog entries about financialization and the imagination.
Now these blog posts, edited by me and Aris are being posted, about one per week, at Public Seminar, the online platform of New York City’s New School for Social Research.
You can find the entire collection here: http://www.publicseminar.org/category/verticals/imaginal-politics/speculative-futures/
Here they are one-by-one. I’ll update this site regularly.
