你将学到什么

Explain the ways in which critical, cultural and literary history and theory contributes to our understanding of three central economic concepts – money, credit, markets.

Evaluate the differences between a number of central critical traditions and theoretical approaches (eg the history of money as credit versus the history of money as a commodity).

Describe the origins and the purpose of the contemporary financial market and the ways in which it functions.

Identify and discuss the ways in which a range of literary and visual texts offer us a critical insight into these histories and give them a social and political relevance.

Critically reflect on the ways in which the visual appearance of money signals it as a source of authority and locates it within a specific place and time.

Evaluate the implications of an historical approach to money that reads it as process of dematerialisation (from barter to gold to paper).

Develop an understanding of the formation of money in contemporary society and why this is a history of credit and how it has been made sense of through a recurring visual and linguistic imagery (eg the bubble and the balloon).

Understand the history and function of the stock exchange and the way in which it has moved from a physical location to a set of highly complex mathematical operations.

Reflect upon your own relationship and access to the idea of the financial market and your knowledge of it.

Examine how the financial crisis was given a narrative in the mainstream press and what this suggested for the need to change the conditions in which it had occurred.
