&Zong: History & Hybridity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

On this panel five writers engage history through degrees of hybrid writing. Using varying elements of lyric, of research, of documentary, of prose, of reportage, of list, these women engage history through a lens that is particularly feminist, and that often engages race, economics, politics, or neoliberalism, itself. 

A combination of reading (10-12 minutes per writer) plus audience questions/ panel discussion, would begin the process of positing questions and theories about the relationship between hybridity and a critical engagement of history.
