Warwick Critical Finance Group

WCF logo

The Warwick Critical Finance (WCF) Group is a research group based at the PAIS department of the University of Warwick which takes a critical approach to new and emerging trends in finance. We seek to create a sustained conversation among researchers at Warwick and beyond working on different aspects of finance - from the level of global financial flows to everyday financialisation - and how finance intersects and interacts with key dimensions such as development, class, gender, race or geography. The group aims to develop a productive awareness of the numerous projects, questions, and ideas pursued in finance research at Warwick and beyond.

We also offer PhD students and early career researchers working on finance the possibility to present their research in the group and receive feedback from fellow finance researchers. Throughout the year, the WCF group organizes lectures, conferences and workshops aimed at strengthening scholarly exchange and at shining a light on the multiple approaches and issues to be discovered within the critical study of finance.

The WCF group works in collaboration with the International Political Economy (IPE) Cluster at PAIS as well as the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation (CSGR).
