Poetics & Higher Ed Justice // Panel 5.5.17

The Role of Writers in the Struggle for a Freer University

Roundtable featuring Makeba Lavan, Conor Tomás Reed, Zohra Saed, and Meghann Williams Moderated by Miriam Atkin

For this round table discussion, CUNY writers, teachers and activists will speak about the history of poets' involvement in mobilizing locally for higher ed access and equality, as well as visualize how writers and artists today can help in shaping the culture of our public institutions to better address the various economically, racially, and intellectually repressive tactics of the current regime.
