Professor Elizabeth F. Emens, the Isidor and Seville Sulzbacher Professor of Law at Columbia Law School, will discuss ideas emerging from her new book Life Admin. Life Admin is the office work of life, from everyday tasks like scheduling doctors appointments and paying bills, to life-cycle events like planning a wedding, a birth, a funeral. During this lecture, Professor Emens will discuss how this labor is created and how it affects our lives -- with a special focus on the unequal burdens of life admin along many dimensions of our identities, including gender, disability, race, and income. Lunch will be served.
