This book consists of 15 studies in the growing area of valuation studies which look at the way things and ideas that are new or unknown are given value. Before these items gain commercial value they are evaluated by experts, reviewed by critics & compared with earlier successes. Thus "moments of valuation" can determine the success of innovations

Gazi Islam, Grenoble Ecole de Management/U. Grenoble Alpes ComUE-IREGE and Insper, Organization Studies Taken together, these chapters provide a broad and multi-level overview of valuations as an analytical lens. Reading through the chapters, I was tempted to reframe many current academic issues as problems of valuation; creativity and innovation, institutional work and contradictory logics, identity and role dynamics, sense making and storytelling approaches could all benefit from thinking in terms of valuation activities and devices. The centrality of materials,
aesthetics and practices in performing valuation further suggests a theoretical synergy; indeed, valuation might provide an interesting hook for materiality scholars to hang their hat on. What are the stakes of such a choice, and what would be gained and lost in the process?

Gazi Islam, Organization Studies (SAGE) A remarkable feature of the book is the persistent coexistence of, on the one hand, the vast array of techniques described to establish aesthetic and material bases for valuation, and on the other hand, the centrality of the principle of dissonance, that newness comes not from the success of these techniques but from their perpetual incompleteness.

Wendy Espeland, Professor of Sociology, Northwestern University How do we value? There could hardly be more a fundamental social process. The recent, global resurgence of scholarly interest in valuation suggests that there is not. It has captured the attentions of researchers in fields ranging from accounting to science studies. The idea that value is somehow inherent in things has been taken apart, subverted by the contingencies of context, form, and cultures. But the question of innovation, of how new things, places, or
expertise are deemed valuable, and how the value of old things is revised or re-appropriated has been relatively neglected. Until now. The editors and authors of Moments of Valuation have accomplished much by demonstrating crucial patterns in that which is provisional in valuation: valuing as situated in
time, subjected to translation, testing, demonstration, and genre; sparked by dissonance. John Dewey, I think, would have approved.

Shamus Khan, Associate Professor of Sociology, Columbia University This collection of brilliant essays suggests that a cacophony of work within cultural sociology can be understood more fully and simply within the frameworks of valuation of dissonance. Not only do these works give scholars important ideas to contend with, they suggest a path for more fruitful conversations about our social world.

Noortje Marres, Senior Lecturer in Sociology, Goldsmiths, University of London Through its focus on moments of valuation, this edited collection radically broadens the range of sites in which the unfolding of value can be observed, from a Chinese art village to Danish pig farms, an AI newsgroup, Berlin restaurants and social housing design. Bringing together key...
