CAMSED is proud to host our very own Professor Ha-Joon Chang in a timely talk on the economics of inequality as presented in the world-renowned film by Director Bong Joon-ho, Parasite.
Winner of four Academy Awards, a Golden Globe, and the Palme d’Or, the film touches on the dynamics of exploitation, class conflict, and the internalization of a capitalist subjectivity in the microcosm of a wealthy South Korean home, and a family’s attempt to escape its systemic deprivation.
Within the context of this artistic masterpiece, Professor Chang’s talk will center on the economics of Parasite, discussing the themes of inequality and its transcendence in a world of highly globalized and concentrated capital.
Following the talk, we will also proceed with a formal dinner for a pleasant chat in great company. We hope to see you there, and highly recommend watching the film before attending – although the talk might just be the right incentive to see it soon.
This will be a CDS student only event as a preview for a wider public talk Ha-Joon plans to give in Easter Term.
So, please join us for the talk on:
Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at 5:00 PM

(followed by formal hall at 7:00 PM)
