For me …

 

MONEY IS not simply a thing but a social process: monetization rather than money as such! It is not only about what money counts and how it compares, but fundamentally about what and who money can be, represent or become!

Therefore I am an

Anthropologist of Money!

Welcome! I am Jens M. Zickgraf. Dedicated to the fascinating topic of money, moneyness.info is my personal website. I use it mainly as a platform to share my profile, some general thoughts on money and moneyness as well as bits and pieces of my research in India.

MONEYNESS is a core theme which (in some respects) evolved from and continues to motivate my research. That’s why I have chosen it as a name for this site. Some of my basic ideas can be found here and here (external link).

Along with moneyness I am interested in:

  • historical variations, contemporary cultures, and future potentials of money
  • money in India
  • payment as “act” and “performance”
  • (social) aesthetics of money
  • monetary and financial inclusion
  • pecuniary identity and monetary capacity
  • (informal) financial landscapes and infrastructures
  • monetization (the process and the narrative)
  • payment technology

Thanks for visting!
