As our nation grapples with a deadly pandemic, economic turbulence, and systemic racism, some have wondered – are we in the midst of a revolution? Will we ever return to life “pre-COVID”? Professor Rebecca L. Spang has long studied money, culture, revolution and consumption and has recently explored these questions in articles for The Atlantic: “The Revolution is Under Way Already” and “How Revolutions Happen.” Reflecting on her studies of the French Revolution, Spang shares that revolutions are rarely planned, and arise during a whirlwind of social and economic upheaval – much like we find ourselves in today.
This event is restricted to Hutton Honors students.
