Aris Komporozos-Athanasiou is the author of Speculative Communities: Living with Uncertainty in a Financialized World (University of Chicago Press, 2022). He is associate professor of sociology at University College London and serves on the Editorial Board of the British Journal of Sociology. His research explores the impact of financial markets on social and political life, and seeks to understand how collective movements weaponise market imaginaries to counter dominant regimes of truth and power under conditions of uncertainty. Aris’s current book project, tentatively titled Real Fake, is an intellectual history of distortion technologies and myth-making in finance capitalism.
