A Conversation with Claudia Rankine, Zahia Rahmani, Jacqueline Woodson, Charles Robinson, and Adam Shatz
This panel will look at literature, both here and in France, and how it engages the work of identity in our era of political extremism and activist movements such as Black Lives Matter in the U.S. or the Nuit Debout in France.
Considering language as a site of political struggle and a reflection of the social constructions that shape our worldview, the authors will discuss the intersections between identity, language and politics. What is the role that literature plays in challenging our preconceptions and reimagining society?
