Martin Devecka: “Socratic Economics”

May 17, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm  |  


Socratic Economics

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.

The Center for Cultural Studies hosts a weekly Wednesday colloquium featuring work by faculty and visitors. The sessions consist of a 40-45 minute presentation followed by discussion. We gather at noon, with presentations beginning at 12:15 PM. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunches; the Center provides coffee, tea, and cookies.

All Center for Cultural Studies events are free and open to the public. Staff assistance is provided by the Institute for Humanities Research.
