Cultural publications have faced daunting challenges but also compelling opportunities during the quarantine. We now have a captive readership stuck largely in their homes; but what do they want to read? From debates over the salience of first person “journal” writing during the quarantine, to the question of “politicizing” the pandemic, this talk will consider how different intellectual publications–including the one I work for, The Point–have attempted to serve their readers in these new circumstances.
Presented by Jon Baskin, Associate Director, Creative Publishing and Critical Journalism.
Prep reading: The Point’s Quarantine Journal
