Black Box Collective says
Please join us in a discussion of Thomas Piketty's modern treatise "Capital in the 21st Century," led by local thinkers and Black Box-contributors Charles Mudede & Mott Greene.

Charles Mudede (journalist, essayist, filmmaker): Charles, who came to the U.S. when his family fled Zimbabwe and is now a longtime writer for weekly newspaper The Stranger, talks about people who move across borders—legally or otherwise—looking for opportunities.

Mott Greene (historian of science and MacArthur Genius): Mott, the inaugural speaker at the 2009 Symposium, returns to talk about how science has shifted in the past few decades, under economic pressures, from the CUDOS model (communal, universalist, disinterested, organized skepticism) to SLIC (secret, local, interested, confirmation-based).

Black Box – A Record of the Catastrophe is Seattle's international review of revolutionary arts and letters. Volume 1 was published this year and is available at Café Presse, Elliott Bay Books, and, of course, Seattle's other source for books, Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Black-Box-Record-Catastrophe-Collective/dp/162963123X
