"Global Libidinal Economy and International Trade" - A Faculty Author Series talk with Dr. Gavin Fridell

November 15, 2023 @ 12:00pm - 1:00pm

At the next Faculty Author Series session, discover how unconscious desire influences the global economy and international trade! Dr. Gavin Fridell, University Research Professor and Chair of Global Development Studies at Saint Mary's, will join us for a conversation about his new co-authored book Global Libidinal Economy (SUNY Press, 2023), which claims unconscious desire plays a central role in the global economy, from everything to consumption and production, to trade, finance, and ecology. Coffee and tea will be served, and there will be time for questions with the author.

Everyone is welcome! RSVP is appreciated but not required. RSVP here. Please contact Bronwen McKie, Outreach & Engagement Librarian, with any questions. Email: library.outreach@smu.ca or Call: 902-420-5198.
