May 27: Erin Graff Zivin

For May 27, we will be talking with Erin Graff Zivin (University of Southern California).

Erin has sent us a very important text of hers, “Towards a Passive University,” to be the focus of our conversation.

You do not need to have read the pieces we talked about last week (though no doubt they will help) to participate. But please be prepared to contribute questions and thoughts about this one for the first hour and a half or so.

I am asking Erin to provide a brief (10 minute or so) introduction or context, but this is a discussion, not a talk.

You may also want to check out what Erin has written very recently on matters related to our current state of pandemic: “Live Free; or, Die”.
