Great Books Lecture Series

In celebration of the 125th anniversary of Labour Day, this year's theme focuses on literary classics preoccupied with labour. The work we do defines us, personally and culturally, and solidifies us as members of a community and a nation. This series examines several "works on work" and how these imaginings of labour create and question our concepts of self.

Series curated by Paul Chafe of Ryerson University.
