Special Issue: Finance, Art, and Popular Culture

Special issue call for papers from Qualitative Research in Financial Markets

Guest Editors:

Qualitative Research in Financial Markets requests submissions for a special issue devoted to the interactions between finance and the arts and popular culture.   As financial markets have grown to become more and more a part of the daily affairs of individuals from all walks of life, it is inevitable that representations of these markets should also make their appearance in both the fine arts and in popular culture.  It is less apparent, but perhaps equally inevitable, that popular culture should have an effect on financial markets, their participants displaying and practicing what they “learn” from the media.  For this special issue we are interested in papers addressing various dimensions of these movements of influence in both directions:

(1) How and/or why is finance represented in the fine arts: painting, sculpture, literature, poetry, performance art, etc.?
(2) How and/or why is finance represented in popular culture: film, television, popular music, graphic novels, cartoons, Internet entertainment, etc.?
(3) How do these representations feed back into financial markets in changes in professional behavior, dress, lifestyle, possessions, interfaces, signage, etc.

Articles of 4,000-5,000 words for consideration for publication should be submitted via Manuscript Central at by 31 October 2016.
