Rutgers University historian James Livingston will be giving a lecture on Thursday, Feb. 6 in the JO Performance Hall at 7:30.

The title of his talk is “After Work: Why Full Employment is a Bad Idea,or, What is to be Done When Work Disappears?”  Details of the talk are here:

I want to encourage interested faculty to attend, and recommend attendance to students in their classes.  Livingston is a provocative thinker, who has an unconventional perspective on recent cultural and intellectual history and its implications for contemporary critical theory and social thought. I’m sure his talk will generate a lively conversation.

Professor Livingston has agreed to meet with graduate students in an informal setting at 4:30 next Thursday afternoon in the Graduate Student lounge.
