This talk joins the ongoing debate about the relationship between empathy and justice, by examining the neoliberal mobilization of empathy in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. It focuses on a specific case study: the 2009 criminal trial of Ralph Cioffi and Matthew Tannin, two Wall Street executives charged with conspiracy and fraud after their hedge fund collapsed. It analyzes the entanglement between the discourse of empathy and the neoliberal imaginary and its effect on this trial.

This talk is part of the Wolfson College Lunchtime Seminar Series - Wednesdays of Full Term series.
