CALL FOR PAPERS

1st FinGeo Global Conference 2019

Global Financial Shift? Mapping a Financialized World in Transformation

Beijing Normal University, Beijing, China, September 15-18, 2019

The Global Network on Financial Geography (FinGeo), launched in 2015, has grown 
to an interdisciplinary membership of over 500 scholars and experts from over 
50 countries around the world. Building on the success of several global 
seminars and a FinGeo Spring School, the time is ripe for FinGeo to start a new 
chapter by organizing a global conference. The first FinGeo global conference

to share research on new developments in the world of finance and their impacts 
on economy, society and environment at different scales, from local to global. 
We also welcome practitioners and policy makers to join the event. It will 
provide a platform for dialogue on the cutting-edge concepts, theories, methods 
and practices that can inform our understanding of the financialized world we 
all live in.

•   The causes, mechanisms and consequences of financialization, and their
