University of Tampere, Westermarck Society

The theme of the 2017 annual conference of the Westermarck Society is excess and overflows. This theme provides an alternative viewpoint to the contemporary ways of living compared both with economic analysis, which takes the scarcity of resources as a starting point, and to the common way of considering societal problems through the framework of deprivation.

The keynote speakers or the annual conference 2017 are professor Christian Borch (Copenhagen Business School, Denmark), professor Sarah Green (University of Helsinki, Finland), professor Annemarie Mol (University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands) and professor Iddo Tavory (New York University, USA)
