Biographical details

My research interests are at the intersection of political economy and social theory, with a focus on money and finance especially in the US context. I have published books on the historical development of American finance and on the psychological and affective dimensions of money and capitalism; books on neoliberalism and on the role of risk and speculation in contemporary financial governance are in press. Please see below for a representative sample of my other publications. Together with Melinda Cooper I am editing a new book series, Currencies: New Thinking for Financial Times, published by Stanford University Press. Prospective research students are welcome to contact me to discuss their projects.
