“Accounts” Interview with Elizabeth Popp Berman

Dear Readers!

The new issue of Accounts, the newsletter of the Economic Sociology section of the ASA, is out. In it, you will find a host of interesting content, including an interview by my co-author Russ Funk with Balázs Vedres (co-winner of the best paper award last year), and a Q&A between myself and Elizabeth Berman, author of the excellent new book Creating the Market University: How Academic Science Became an Economic Engine. You can get the new issue here and check out the nicely re-designed section website here.

  1. Funny. Just got the book in the mail today 😉 I was glad to read you asked about her take on the performativity programme. I was wondering about that as I try to take this route myself when looking into the commercialization of academic outputs.

    Anyhow, I didn’t read the whole thing yet, but it made me think about Mark Blyth’s (2002) Great Transformations: Economic Ideas and Institutional Change in the Twentieth Century.
