Conversation: Personae in the Twenty-first Century
Saturday, June 30, 2018
Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor
Artist David Levine moderates a conversation on the use of personae in our domestic, political, and online lives, with New Yorker staff writer and novelist Elif Batuman; writer and journalist Adrian Chen; art historian Carrie Lambert-Beatty; and journalist, critic, and author Virginia Heffernan. They explore the bots, trolls, rent-a-families, fake crowds, and other parafictional characters blurring distinctions between fact and fiction, fake and real in the twenty-first century.
