Lighthouse Lecture Series: The Time of Money

21 August 2017

Debts we can’t repay, wages that don’t cover our cost of living and struggling degree-educated millennials working unpaid internships. These are just some of the financial issues facing our society today that pose the question: Why do we now not earn enough to live? On Monday 21 August in the fourth instalment of Macquarie University’s Lighthouse Lecture Series, Professor Lisa Adkins from the University of Newcastle will join us to discuss The Time of Money. Adkins will cover a range of issues on how the logic of speculation is transforming our everyday lives and will consider how this impacts our society. Register your attendance and join us in welcoming Professor Adkins to Macquarie University’s Lighthouse Lecture Series. Arrive at 4pm and take the opportunity to network with your peers before Lisa takes the stage at 4.30pm.
