OK, I'll admit it: I've never read this. But now is the time for me (and you?) to finally fill this gap in my cultural literacy. :)

Read more about the book here:

I will dress up as Darcy if you will dress up as Elizabeth (or also as Darcy).

See you there!

    We had a wonderful discussion with a diversity of thoughtful insights. At this, my first meeting, I found a group of well-read, intelligent people.

    I don't know if I'm going. It depends on where it is and if I can find it (I'm new around here). Anybody in Thomasville want to carpool?

    • Kathryn

      I'm in Jamestown if you want to stop at my place, and then we can carpool the rest of the way.

      It'll be at my house in chapel hill. Near I40.

    Love the dress up idea! Sorry I can't make it!

    WAS JANE AUSTEN THE FIRST GAME THEORIST?

    MICHAEL CHWE
    Associate Professor of Political Science (UCLA)
    Author of Jane Austen, Game Theorist (2013)

    Where: SSRI-West, Gross Hall, Room 230E (directions)
    When: Tuesday, March 25, 2014

    4:00-5:00 pm:
    Learn to play Regency era card games. Test your own game theory strategies in these card games from Austen's novels. Speculation! Commerce! Loo! (and more)

    5:00-6:00 pm:
    Presentation and discussion https://ssri.duke.edu/news/was-jane-austen-first-game-theorist

    Michael Chwe shows how game theory, usually envisioned as a "scientific" and "mathematical" technique for examining strategic decision-making, actually has its roots in the humanities fields, specifically within the literary work of famed British author, Jane Austen. In this way, Chwe masterfully bridges the gap between the sciences and humanities, showing that the two fields are not mutually exclusive.

    I'm happy to dress in Regency finery, but I'm just a bit too long in the tooth to be Elizabeth! Maybe Lady Catherine is more my style....
