Bergren Forum - "The Conflict between Competition & Leisure"

Emrys Westacott

This talk will examine ways in which our competitive culture, so often praised for its productivity, makes it hard for us to achieve the leisured lifestyles that the automation of work was supposed to make possible.
The Bergren Forum sponsored by the Division of Human Studies, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Provost’s Office will be meeting from 12:10 pm - 1:00 pm on Thursday, September 12 in Nevins Theater, Powell Campus Center.
