Hosted By UVA Clubs
Event Details
On-Air with Ken Elzinga

The UVA Clubs program and the College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences invite you to join Ken Elzinga for a private conference call to discuss Detective Fiction and COVID-19. Ken Elzinga, Robert C. Taylor Professor of Economics, College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, will talk about his experiences writing mystery fiction (which he started during his tenure at UVA) and will then share the classic mysteries he's been reading while sequestered at home. Ken will also answer live questions from the audience.

The author of more than one hundred academic publications, Ken Elzinga is also known for four mystery novels (under the pen name Marshall Jevons) where the protagonist employs economic analysis to solve the crime. The latest Marshall Jevons book is "The Mystery of the Invisible Hand". The novels have been used in classrooms across the country to illustrate introductory economic principles, and have been translated into seven languages.

Important Note: Call-in number and passcode will be emailed to registered participants upon registration. You must have these details to access this private call.
