Conférence de Alexandre Roig lors du colloque "Pricing, Practices, Ranking" organisé par le département de Sciences Sociales et le département d’Économie

Sixième session: Twenty years after The Social Meaning of Money : A discussion with Viviana Zelizer

In this paper, I offer an account of the circulation of commodities and monies in prison where trade, whether monetary or not, is forbidden. Drawing from a collective ethnographic research, I discuss the social mechanisms that lead to the ranking of people and objects that money reifies. The analysis of monetary forms casts light on the social dynamics at play in the carceral system as well as the relative status of “chorros” (thieves) and “transas” (dealers). In doing so, this work contributes to our understanding of the essence of money.
