Why We Write: The Politics and History of Writing for Social Change Conference
March 28-29, 2003
New York, NY 10027
As a result of the overwhelming success of last year’s interdisciplinary conference on the History of Activism, History as Activism at Columbia University, the graduate students in the history department are currently organizing an interdisciplinary conference on the historical, theoretical, and political dimensions of writing. The objective of the conference is to provide a forum for writers, activists, novelists, screenwriters, poets, journalists, graduate students, and faculty–from all fields and across all time periods and geographic locations–to discuss “why they write.”
Opening Keynote Address by Dorothy Allison author of Bastard Out of Carolina, Trash, and Cavedweller on Friday, March 28th at 9:30 A.M.
