A provisional schedule for the upcoming conference, Money on the Left: Word, Image, Praxis, is now available through the Modern Money Network Humanities Division's expanding website: http://modern-money-humanities.webflow.io/schedule. 

Money on the Left is an interdisciplinary conference designed to inaugurate a new scholarly organization and project: the Humanities Division of the Modern Money Network (MMN). Leveraging the vast theoretical and methodological repertoire of the humanities, MMN's Humanities Division discloses the ways that modern money and cultural expression together shape the world in order to imagine a just and sustainable future. The conference will take place April 6 & 7 on the campus of the University of South Florida. 

Meanwhile, we are pleased to announce the addition of two noteworthy participants to the program. Kaniela Ing, Hawaii State Representative and Democratic Socialist candidate for Congress, will speak via remote feed about the significance of Modern Monetary Theory for the future of left politics. Also, actor-director Joseph Gordon-Levitt will participate on the "Digital Arts & Humanities" panel in the form of a pre-recorded video conversation. Gordon-Levitt will discuss what his online media project and production company hitRECord means for creating a publicly financed digital commons.
