socializing finance blog, and, waiting for performativity to perform


Brayden pointed out a new blog to me today – Socializing Finance: A Blog on the Social Studies of Finance by Daniel Buenza and colleagues. 

Their most recent post – performativity, for or against – resurrects some issues raised in our recent book seminar on MacKenzie’s An Engine, Not a Camera.  After reading the MacKenzie book, along with a host of related published articles, and writing several blog posts, and reading others (including the mega-one), and discussing the arguments with colleagues of various stripes – I am still at a loss as to what performativity is.  I am not losing any sleep over the matter, but, was glad to see the question raised again.
