Please join us for an afternoon of conversation with the distinguished

known as a cutting edge theorist and public intellectual. His publications
span theories of value, the anti-globalization direct action movement,
political culture in Madagascar, and re-thinking anthropology as anarchism.
In addition to his academic writings, Graeber has published essays in
journals such as Harper’s and The Nation. He has delivered numerous
prestigious lectures, including the 2006 Malinowski Lecture at the London
School of Economics. His work has been translated into many languages, and
he continues to participate in debates about the international direct
movement. At Harvard, Graeber will discuss his recent work, including his
essay “On the Phenomenology of Giant Puppets: Broken Windows, Imaginary
of Urine, and the Cosmological Role of the Police in American Culture,”
which will available for circulation on request.
