September 29 at 7pm: “The Making of Chimerica: Globalization, Economics, & Mark Twain’s ‘Fable of the Yellow Terror,’” by Dr. Matthew Seybold, Elmira College
Using marginalia Twain left in books at Quarry Farm in 1903, Dr. Seybold traces how discussions of self-interest in classical political economy provide the inspiration for Twain's incredibly prophetic critique of U.S. imperialism and Chinese-American relations in the first decade of the 20th century.
