Scholars & Their Publics: A Conversation with Amitava Kumar and Matt Jacobson, moderated by Leah Mirakhor
Wednesday, October 7, 2020 - 6:00pm to 7:15pm
In this conversation, Professors Kumar and Jacobson examine how historians and literary studies scholars write about the present and for a public audience. Using Amitava Kumar’s Every Day I Write the Book (2020) and Matt Jacobson’s The Historian’s Eye: Photography, History and the American Present (2019), we will engage the various practices, politics and aesthetics of writing publicly and against critical moments like these.
Co-hosted by Public Humanities and The Program in Ethnicity, Race, & Migration
