To receive credit for this post, please write a 250-word write-up of the event described below by Friday, April 20th.
This weekend (April 6-7), my colleague Scott Ferguson is holding a conference called “Money on the Left: Word, Image, Praxis.” Ferguson’s a theorist of an esoteric branch of economic theory called Modern Monetary Theory. Although many of the papers deal with economics, some are on the aesthetics and artistic representations of money and alternate ways of thinking about what money is and what it does (or could do) in our society. I don’t expect you to follow the talks entirely (I’m expecting to be lost continually since these are experts in fields I’m not familiar with), but what I’d like you to do is to attend a panel, take some notes, and then write up your tentative idea about what the talks are saying about their topics.
