The Inaugural Year: Christine Desan Lecture—As Mainstream as the Mail: Re-Imagining Money, From Theory to (Postal) Practice

Titsworth Marjorie Leff Miller ’53 Lecture Hall

Open to the public

/ Tuesday

1:30pm-3:00pm

The Bitcoin boom attests to the deep public capacity to re-imagine money. Money runs through our lives in countless ways, a currency of value that denominates the work we perform and the property we own, the savings we put aside for those we love and the contributions we make towards the public sphere. If we can reconceive money, we can revise an elemental medium that relates people to each other, to those in authority, and to those across borders. The trick is not, however, inventing a crypto-currency, isolated from governance and immune from human interpretation. It is to understand and remake money as it exists at the core of political and economic life.

Thursday 3 May

Leslie Jamison Craft of Creative Nonfiction—Compassion and Confession

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Thursday

2:00pm-3:00pm

Leslie Jamison will discuss her work as a writer who brings together personal, critical, and journalistic approaches, who writes her own life alongside the lives of others. She will discuss writing about a variety of subjects, including long distance runners, prison inmates, whale fanatics, and medical patients. What are the moral complexities of writing other peoples’ lives? She will discuss the obligations a writer might feel towards her subjects—the interplay between guilt and affection, between care and skepticism. What does it mean to confess the self—in all its quandaries and questions—inside a piece of reportage? How does a piece work differently when it includes reported material alongside deeply personal reflections—when we sense the reporter as a deeply emotional and subjective presence with a story of her own?
