Associate Professor Emily Barman Publishes New Book
Professor Emily Barman’s latest book, Caring Capitalism: The Meaning and Measure of Social Value in the Market has recently been published by Cambridge University Press.
In this work, Barman explores how the growing emphasis of “social value” in the marketplace has shifted the way organizations and companies determine and demonstrate the social value of their goods and services. Barman studies this social valuation across sectors, ranging from non-profits, to social enterprises, to socially responsible businesses.
In 2007, Professor Barman’s first book–Contesting Communities–won the best book award from the National Association of Fundraising Professionals. She has also previously written about the social organization of altruism and philanthropy in such publications as Journal of Management Studies, American Journal of Sociology, Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Sociological Forum and Valuation Studies.
