Lecture: “The Making of Millenials”
American Center invites you to a meeting with Malcolm Harris, an editor at The New Inquiry and the author of ‘Kids These Days: Human Capital and the Making of Millennials’, a book that immediately became a best-seller and drew attention from Western media including The New York Times and The Financial Times. In his book, Harris doesn’t promise to deliver ready-to-use instruction, but rather suggests new approaches to generational discourse.
Malcolm Harris will talk about Millennials and give us a portrait of what it means to be young in America today through examining trends like runaway student debt, the rise of the intern, mass incarceration, social media, and more.
Millennials were the first generation raised explicitly as investments, Harris argues, and in Kids These Days he dares us to confront and take charge of the consequences now that we are grown up.
