Reality Hunger: A Conversation with David Shields and Robert Cohen
January 12, 4:30pm
Axinn Center, Abernethy Room
An exploration of communication, miscommunication, mass culture and non-fiction - who owns ideas? What are the distinctions between fiction and non-fiction? Are traditional modes of expression obsolete given the velocity of digital culture? This conversation is a reframing of the debate between creative non-fiction, memoir, and the relevance of the novel.
