The Heyman Center: We ♥ U, Joseph Stiglitz

Written by

The Heyman Center has released their Spring 2010 events schedule, and it’s highlighted by not one, but two appearances by Mr. Right Side of History himself, Joseph Stiglitz.  He’ll be part of “The Continuing Financial Crisis: Perspectives from the North and the South” on March 25th with Prabhat Patnaik, and Jomo Kwame Sundaram, and “Mismeasuring Our Lives: Why GDP Doesn’t Add Up,” along with Nancy Folbre and Geoffrey Heal on April 19th.

Others that stand out:

  • “The Great American University: Is Its Preeminence at Risk?” Our guess is “maybe,” but Geoffrey Stone (current editor of the Inalienable Rights series), Richard Axel (2004 winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine), and former CU provost Jonathan Cole discuss.  February 17th.
  • Eric Sundquist delivers this year’s Lionel Trilling Seminar, “Obama, King, Ralph Ellison, and the American Dream.” Kenneth Warren and Glenn Loury are the respondents.  April 15.
  • Jamaica Kincaid (Important Author) gives a reading followed by an interview. April 22nd.
  • M.H. Abrams, who conceived and edited the freaking Norton Anthology of English Literature, will lecture on “The Fourth Dimension of Poetry.” April 28th.
