What does it mean to be indebted—politically, economically, artistically, or ethically? Artist Kristine Aono, whose work is featured in the exhibition “If You Remember, I’ll Remember,” will be joined by Smith University’s Laura Fugikawa (Women and Gender Studies) as well as Northwestern’s Kelly Wisecup (English) and Ji-Yeon Yuh (History) to discuss the theory and complexity of reparations in American history.

Copresented by the Kaplan Institute for the Humanities and made possible in part by the support of the Harris Lecture Fund.


 

About The Debt Dialogues

In partnership with two dozen departments and programs across Northwestern, the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities will present a year-long series of conversations around the theme of DEBT in 2016-2017. Distinguished scholars and artists from across humanities fields will explore financial debt; the ethics and politics of obligation; cultural and artistic indebtedness; religious and environmental responsibilities; indebtedness to sources; the psychology of debt; labor and slavery; liability and dependency; human burdens, protests and narratives.

Made possible in part by the generous support of the Harris Lecture Fund, the Debt Dialogues are free and open to the public.
