Seminar: Moral Economies in the Modern Life-Cycle

Seminar: Moral Economies in the Modern Life-Cycle

Stephanie Olsen (MPI for Human Development)
Offered at the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin

Life is colloquially imagined as taking place through distinctly separate stages, each one of which serving to define the individual. These stages conceptualize appropriate actions and behaviors for particular age groups, yet they are by no means universal in time or place. Through an interdisciplinary and broad reading of various periods and places, mainly in the modern Anglo-American context, this course will interrogate how the category of age impacts the historical analysis of moral economies. For more information, see the course syllabus.
