Session with Larry Glickman rescheduled for Thursday, May 6 + date for annual History Slam

Hello everyone,

We are delighted to announce that we have a new date for the session with Larry Glickman that we were forced to cancel in March! We rescheduled this meeting for next Thursday, May 6, at 8 pm on Zoom. Shoot us an email if you are not on our list and want to receive the link!

We will continue our conversations about writing for public audiences. Larry has great expertise in the matter. He selected four of his pieces for us to discuss:

1. “Don’t Let Them Eat Cake” in the Boston Reviewhttp://bostonreview.net/law-justice/lawrence-glickman-masterpiece-cakeshop

2. “The Racist Politics of the English Language” in the Boston Reviewhttp://bostonreview.net/race/lawrence-glickman-racially-tinged

3. “How White Backlash Controls American Progress” in The Atlantichttps://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/05/white-backlash-nothing-new/611914/

4. “Why President Trump used lynching as a metaphor” in The Washington Posthttps://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2019/10/23/why-trump-used-lynching-metaphor/

Thank you so much to Larry for his availability! 

Also, mark your calendars for our annual History Slam, now officially set for Friday, May 21st, at 1 pm (link & more information to follow). Never been to our History Slam? It’s like a poetry slam (only with history), or a blues jam (only not at a bar, although food and drinks are highly encouraged!). It’s an open format, alternative way to present creative historical work to a sympathetic, supportive audience. It’s the sort of informal gathering for which you can sign up ahead of time, and be scheduled, or you can decide on the spur-of-the-moment to stand up and share your stuff.

Looking forward to seeing you next week,

Benedetta & Kelsey
