Anthropology and Financial Value: assemblages of investment practice
My goal is to undertake fieldwork with an investment agency in one of the world’s main financial centres. I hope to secure a role working with at least one company to document the different dimensions of investment practice and to understand how the relations and interactions there shape the pursuit of financial value.
