This volume gathers together a selection of essays from contributors working in various fields who focus, from diverse standpoints and research methodologies, on the many forms of intersection between Economics and the Humanities, a research area that has drawn increasing scholarly attention over the last few years. Bringing literary, cultural and linguistic perspectives into fruitful dialogue, the volume’s multifocal approach lays bare the extent to which notions of ‘money’, ‘debt’, ‘credit’, ‘bond’, ‘gift’, ‘property’, ‘value’, ‘market’ and ‘exchange’ shape human identities and interactions, covering a time span from the Early Modern period to the twenty-first century
