Fall 2019 Grant Recipient

Jennifer Bair (Sociology), Richard Handler (Anthropology), and Yingyao Wang (Sociology)

Talks on the Economy, Market, Politics and Organizations (TEMPO) is an interdisciplinary workshop of faculty and graduate students devoted to the development of empirical work exploring the global and/or comparative dimension of “the economic” in social life. We meet twice monthly to discuss and critique a work in progress from a UVa member of the group or an external scholar. Core topics of interest include the transnational organization of trade, production, and investment, the dynamics of contemporary development, and the role of social networks and cultural processes in the making of the global economy.
