Food for Thought: A new Center for Advanced Study public events series featuring presentations of research and creative projects by recent CAS Associates and Fellows.
This informal series includes talks that were canceled after campus shut down in Spring 2020. With the possibility of in-person events once again, we are delighted to showcase the work of some of our most productive and creative faculty in a series of intellectually and spiritually invigorating presentations. You are invited to drop in when you can and enjoy a bite to eat while you learn about the exciting projects undertaken by our faculty. A brunch buffet will be provided at all in-person events.

Noon, Amanda Ciafone, "The Industrial Scrapheap": Producing Old Age, Technological Obsolescence, and the Shorter Work Life in the Early Twentieth-Century US
How did the typical work day, work week, and work life become standardized? How many hours should one work and at what ages? Professor Ciafone will discuss early 20th-century struggles over retirement and the temporalities of waged work framed around old age, unemployment, and technological change.
