Warwick Critical Finance

The Warwick Critical Finance (WCF) Group is a network by and for early career scholars, who theorise the power of finance from social scientific perspectives.

We hold events that intentionally differ from conventional event formats to see whether there are better ways of organising, supporting, and stimulating academic debates – especially for those of us, who are relatively new to the academic world.

We publish a newsletter that highlights events, publications, and news of interest to critical finance scholars, and we have edited a special issue, which explores 'critical macro finance' as a methodological and theoretical approach. You can find us on Twitter!
