Chinnie Ding, a doctoral candidate in English at Harvard, focusing on 20th-century poetry and intellectual history.

**Starting Question: How might labor -- as individual and collective, manual and mental means -- be more justly valued and more creatively recognized?


Format: The discussion, on the evening of the autumn equinox, will feature three short talks and then a series of facilitated discussions to help the participants identify the means that are available but might go unnoticed.

 

Outcome: The data and ideas generated during the discussions will be recorded and put through a data visualization process and presented as a part of The Last Supper Festival.
