This panel discussion features a number of contributors to the edited collection, Market/Place: Exploring Spaces of Exchange (to be published by Agenda Publishers in 2020, co-edited by Christian Berndt, Jamie Peck and Norma M. Rantisi). The objective of the book is to advance a pluralist research program on the critical study of markets and marketization -- one that can offer an alternative to the dominant neoclassical account of 'the' Market as a self-regulating, universal system by analyzing the spatiality and diversity of concrete small-m markets. The book seeks to (re)claim the terrain of the market for heterodox, substantive, critical inquiry and elucidate the (always) instituted, hybrid, networked and contested character of markets. By foregrounding markets as variegated constructs that are 'always in the making', or 'marketization', such a project seeks to break with the essentialist conception that underpins the neoclassical model as well as those critical heterodox accounts that present the 'Market' as a hegemonic and uniform force. In this session, the panelists will provide brief commentaries on their respective chapters to the edited volume and what they contribute to a pluralist project of 'placing' markets and marketization.
