Registration required.

Eugene McCarraher's Enchantments of Mammon: How Capitalism Became the Religion of Modernity (Harvard University Press, 2019) presents capitalism as a mystical project, contra its claims to isolated rationality. “Sacrilizing Money” brings McCarraher into conversation with Dartmouth scholars Bethany Moreton (History), Devin Singh (Religion), and Russell Muirhead (Government) to explore different perspectives on the presence of intimacy, virtue, and mysticism in financial transactions, and the ramifications of a more expansive framework for money amidst upheaval in the capitalist and neoliberal regimes. Amy Schiller (Government, Society of Fellows, Dartmouth College) will moderate.
