Convenors: Denys Gorbach (Sciences Po Paris), Don Kalb (University of Bergen)

Our workshop centers around the notion of commodity chains. By focusing on changes happening at and between different scales of these chains, we want to uncover processes that stitch together the ‘lumpy’ (Cooper 2005) configuration of labour and capital that is known today as ‘Europe’.
