Merchants of Debt: A Collaboration
Northwestern University

Thursday, January 12, 2017 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM

Eula Biss (English/Northwestern) and Maryann Bylander (Sociology/Lewis & Clark College).

Drawn from Professor Bylander’s research in Cambodia on micro-lending practices and threading in references to The Merchant of Venice about how the intent of a loan might shape its terms, Biss and Bylander will reflect on debt, predatory lending, and their collaborative process of researching and writing a non-fiction essay for a general audience.

This talk is co-presented by the Center for the Writing Arts and the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, as part of the Institute’s 2016-2017 Debt Dialogue Series.
