As attempts to “feign control over the uncontrollable” ideas and technologies of risk have been central in the development and expansion of modalities of governance and forms of economic practice. From the unaccountable hazard to a calculable probability the transformation of risk is a privileged vantage point to understand shifting terrains of the political and the economic, specifically the development of contemporary finance capitalism and the rise of security regimes globally. Drawing from political theory, science and technology studies, social studies of finance, literary studies, and anthropology this course brings into conversation a set of literatures on evidence, probability, insurance, finance capitalism, trade diasporas, audit, clinical trials, policing, debt and credit in order to map the interconnections and interstices of risk, finance, and security.
