Dear Colleagues,

Please join the Modernism Seminar of the Mahindra Humanities Center at
Harvard on Thursday, October 13, at 6:00 p.m. to hear Ravit Reichman
present:

*Modernism’s Conditions of Ownership: *

* From Forster and Bowen to Marie Kondo*

The presentation will take place in Boylston Hall, room 335.  Boylston Hall
is just to the east of the Mass Ave. side of Widener Library on this campus

Ravit Reichman is Associate Professor of English at Brown University. She
is the author of *The Affective Life of Law: Legal Modernism and the
Literary Imagination* (2009), and has been a Fulbright Scholar and a fellow
at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. Her current book project, *Lost
Properties of the Twentieth Century*, examines the cultural, literary, and
legal life of ownership in the context of historical crisis.

There is free parking near the HHC at the Broadway Garage, on Felton
between Broadway and Cambridge Street. Just tell the attendant that you're
participating in an event at the HHC. Normally the attendant is welcoming,
as long as it's after 5:00 p.m., even if we are erroneously not on the good
list.

We hope you'll be able to attend the session, which, as always, includes
discussion after the presentation.

Details about the Center, including a calendar of events, are available at:
