Cultural Criticism in an Era of Deconstructed Whiteness
Co-presented by WNYC and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs
Monday, September 18, 2017
How do we write about art and culture when perspectives are rooted in identity, racial justice and social equality?
Do we actively de-center whiteness when we first approach a piece of art? What is a writer's responsibility to readers and to themselves as cultural critics?
Rebecca Carroll, WNYC's editor for special projects, leads a panel discussion on race and writing with cultural critics and essayists Fariha Róisín, Antwaun Sargent and E. Alex Jung.
