Financialization is a new word and its magnitude recent, but some features of this phenomenon have a long history. The leading historian Francesca Trivellato will explore the expansion of private credit markets in Europe from 1200 to 1800, emphasizing the benefits as well as the real and perceived dangers that this expansion brought about. The talk will stress how figures of the 'Jewish usurer' helped critics make sense of the increasing abstraction of the paper economy.

Critical Globality

En forelæsningsrække

Critical Globality is a new lecture series at Roskilde University. At a time when global questions radically increase in importance, we need to ask questions about how ‘the global’ can best be understood. With three invited speakers per semester, Critical Globality will engage international scholars in a conversation about historical and contemporary iterations of global connections, networks, economies and politics.
