The work of the writer is stubbornly split. On the one hand, prose remains our best vehicle for the impartation of information and the development of arguments—in other words, it helps us to think and to relay our thoughts. But then there's the fact that the best novels, stories, essays, and even works of criticism tend, however explicitly, to arrive chock-full of emotion and attitude, stuff that lives in a place beyond fact and undiscoverable by logic alone.
In this talk, Vinson Cunningham speaks a bit about how these two modes—the emotional and the critical-analytical—might be resolved, and how their resolution might change the way we think about the work we call "political."
This event is free to attend and open to the public.
