Century Club Series: Morality & Markets

Thursday, November 14, 2019 | 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM

Emerson Auditorium
Knight Hall, St. Louis, MO 63105

What does business have to say to literature? Or literature to business? Do future business leaders have anything to learn from fiction? And can great stories be reimagined through the expertise of executives? These questions come together in Morality and Markets, a new course for WashU’s Beyond Boundaries program. Two faculty members—Peter Boumgarden from Olin and Abram Van Engen from Arts & Sciences—will share how the promises, pitfalls and possibilities of the modern market come alive and challenge us in new ways when we approach them through the creative imagination of the literary arts.

This event is presented by Olin’s Century Club Business Series and the Arts & Sciences Connection Series.
