This semester, the PPE Program will host two guest speakers, one Visiting Research Scholar (the whole spring semester), and the third PPE Distinguished Public Lecture.
Douglas Noonan (Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis) will speak about freelancers, innovation, and crowds (the talk is co-organized with the Center for Humanities), Dan Ariely (Duke University) will speak about free beer (the lecture is co-organized with the Data and Decisions Destination Area), and Michael Douma will speak about creative historical thinking.
In addition, the PPE Program will organize an all-day discussion colloquium with Theodore Christov (George Washington University) on the topic “Democracy in America,” and the PPE Reading Group will meet biweekly to discuss Elizabeth Anderson’s (University of Michigan) book Private Government.
All PPE events are open to faculty, students, and the general public. For more details concerning these events, please see the PPE Calendar.
