OFFSITE EVENT: The Deep Read with Hernan Diaz

Sunday, May 19, 2024 - 4:00pm

A Conversation with Hernan Diaz

Join The Humanities Institute at UC Santa Cruz for a live discussion at the Kaiser Permanente Arena (140 Front Street, Santa Cruz) with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Hernan Diaz in conversation with Deep Read Faculty Lead, Associate Professor of Literature Zac Zimmer as they close the book on the 2024 Deep Read exploration of TrustTrust pairs the music of the roaring 1920s with the staccato rhythm of the ticker tape in an exploration of how trusts, bonds, and other financial instruments of the early twentieth century penetrate the very core of human relationships and the stories we tell about them. Together we’ll consider how the technologies of finance and fiction overlap in this novel about capitalism and its social, cultural, and political power in the U.S.
