*Not open to the public.
Professor Chris Desan will host a student-faculty lunch on April 13. Professor Desan is the Leo Gottlieb Professor of Law at Harvard Law School. Her research explores money as a legal and political project, one that configures the market it sets out to measure. She has recently published a book called Making Money: Coin, Currency, and the Coming of Capitalism (Oxford University Press, 2014). She is also the editor of Inside Money: Re-Theorizing Liquidity (forthcoming, University of Pennsylvania Press), and co-editor with Sven Beckert of Capitalism in America: New Histories (in progress). The lunch will be held at Russell House Tavern. Space is limited, and RSVP is required.
