What To Do

Suzanne Gardinier –Taste and power: writers and the state

Date/Time

Oct 2, 2018
02:00 PM until 03:00 PM

Description

This talk with Suzanne Gardinier will focus on questions of power surrounding what it means to be a writer in the United States, now & over the past 50-or-so years.

How did the MFA program originate? What are the complex forces that form any reader's or writer's taste, & the complex forces that frame literary contests & publication & reputation? What are the complexities of a writer's connection to the state(s) in which s/he writes?—all aimed at what Raymond Williams called "unlearning the inherent dominative mode."

This event is free to attend and open to the public.
