Colleen Eren will discuss her book Bernie Madoff and the Crisis: The Public Trial of Capitalism, which was released by Stanford University Press in 2017. Rooted in critical sociology, the book analyzes media coverage of the case alongside original interviews with Madoff, the SEC director of Public Relations, and dozens of journalists and editors. She argues that our ideological and cultural tendencies to attribute blame to individuals–be they regulators, victims, or “monsters” like Madoff–distracts us from more systemic critiques. The book offers fresh insight into the Madoff scandal and the crisis of 2008, exploring what we have yet to gain from the case of the century.
