Program Description

About this event:

Marginalized voices are often met with a contradictory combination of advice: "you must tell your story", and Don't overshare".  At the same time, we meet an ever-encroaching dearth of expectation of privacy in our society, particularly coming from online culture as well as an excess of ability to self-publish, or to publish a large fast amount of material (also often online).  In a fast-pub world, helped along by a never-ending news cycle and academia's emphasis on publication, is there still a place for private writing?  How do we assign value to our writing? How do we decide, morally, ethically, and aesthetically/artistically, what we should do with our work, and which work we should make? Panelists include Eleanor Henderson, Gina Keicher, Katie Marks, and Jaime Warburton (moderator).
