About this Seminar:

Decades of Mary Catherine Bateson’s work have focused on learning as an ongoing, improvisational act. Teaching cultural anthropology at Harvard, Northeastern and Amherst, heading the Institute for Intercultural Studies, and most recently taking a post as Visiting Scholar at the Center for Aging & Work/Workplace Flexibility, she has long endeavored to bring knowledge unique to individual cultures and constituencies into public discourse.

Her most recent book is Composing a Further Life: The Age of Active Wisdom, an exploration of wisdom and learning in a culture that has only recently, because of extended life-expectancy, come to encompass four simultaneous generations.
