Mary Poovey, Samuel Rudin University Professor in the Humanities, NYU , will explore some of the challenges of moving from a lifelong research project centred in 18th- and 19th-century British literature to a project focused on modern economics and finance, mostly in the US. Mary Poovey will discuss the argument of the book she and Kevin R Brine are completing, A Modern Way of Knowing: Studies in the History of Financial Modeling, and she will examine the risks and rewards of this intellectual swerve.

This event is free to attend and open to everyone. No registration required.
