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 Shakespeare's 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, the Department of English, and the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities as part of the Institute's 2016-2017 Debt Dialogue Series.
