PERC is launching its first thematic series, which will explore the phenomenon of Silicon Valley ideology. Each week for the next two months, experts from the fields of political economy, political science, economic history, cultural studies and law will share their research perspectives on the recent trends that have animated the Silicon Valley bubble.

The series is conceived as open-ended, and we will keep welcoming new contributions and responses coming from all academic and non-academic backgrounds (including students’ contributions). If you wish to get involved or would like to pitch an idea for a contribution, get in touch with our editor, Carla Ibled (c.ibled[at]

The series is supported by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) (no. ES/X007359/1) and the South East Network for Social Sciences (SeNSS).
