This week is the annual Social Science History Association meeting. I’m excited to be presenting a preliminary overview of my dissertation, “Inventing the Economy (or, How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the GDP)” at a panel on Saturday at 10:15am called “Making Things with Social Science.” The panel also features Lisa Stampnitzky talking about torture and human rights experts, and Joseph Harris on the role of experts in the expansion of universal healthcare across the world. Our discussant will be philosopher of science and blogger Dan Little.
I hope to see some of you there! And drop me a line if you’re interested in grabbing coffee, etc.
