Lecture: What's Posterity Ever Done For Us?


Location: Snite Museum of Art, Annenberg Auditorium

Imagined future generations have an important place in our thinking about the arts, ethics, and sustainability studies. Ideas of cultural continuity and intergenerational justice are essential to the sense of coherence and meaning in our lives. How do we begin to put posterity back in our civic discourse? John Sitter, May Lee Duda Professor of Literature, will address this question as part of the Saturday Scholars Series.
