This spring, the Center for European Studies at Harvard is holding their keynote lecture The Jubilee: Debt Forgiveness in Modern Europe as part of the Europe on Credit Series.
This year-long series brings together financial experts, literary scholars, historians, and social scientists to examine the connection between public finance and narratives of indebtedness and creditworthiness.
