Protest on the Page: Print Culture History in Opposition to Almost Anything*
(*you can think of)
September 28-30, 2012
The Pyle Center
702 Langdon Street
Conference Program here
Fee: $175 (standard) or $75 (student)
Protest has a long and varied tradition in America. The conference will feature papers focusing on authors, publishers and readers of oppositional materials, in all arenas from politics to literature, from science to religion. Whether the dissent takes the form of a banned book by Henry Miller or documents from Wikileaks, conference presentations will help us to understand how dissent functions within print and digital cultures.
The Case for Protest: verbal and visual, noisy and silent, legal and illegal, overt and covert, and other forms too numerous to mention
Friday, September 28, 5:30 p.m.
Victor Navasky is the Publisher Emeritus of The Nation and the George T. Delacorte Professor in Magazine Journalism, Director of the Delecorte Center for Magazine Journalism, and Chair of the Columbia Journalism Review. In addition, he is the author of such noted books as Kennedy Justice (1971), Naming Names (National Book Award, 1982), and A Matter of Opinion (George Polk Book Award, 2005). Perhaps best known for his long career as editor and then publisher of The Nation, Navasky has an understanding of dissent and its publications that has few peers.
