Ian MorrisBadè Museum Reception and Lecture
6:30pm-8:00pm, Badè Museum
Free and open to the public - no registration required

This pre-conference lecture is held each year just prior to the Earl Lectures. This year, join preeminent historian, archaeologist, and classicist Ian Morris for an inspiring lecture, titled Economic Growth and Economic Justice in the Ancient World.
In the last 15 years, archaeologists and historians have provided evidence of sustained economic growth and rising living standards in the first millennium BC all the way from China to the Mediterranean, followed by a widespread economic crisis in the early-mid first millennium AD. Dr. Morris will describe some of this evidence and discuss the distribution of the fruits of growth and the causes of ancient economic expansions and contractions.

Weaving biblical and personal narrative, dance, music, and economic theory, Leaps and Bounds addresses the driving factors of our economic and ecological crises while awakening the imagination to a new way of living with and relating to Earth.
