Martin Devecka: “Socratic Economics”
May 17, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Martin Devecka is in the early stages of a research project on leisure and labor in fourth-century Athens. His work explores the processes through which competing claims to leisure and to the labor of others led to the privileging of politics as a way of thinking about collective action.
Martin Devecka is an Assistant Professor of Literature and Classics at UCSC.
