The Power of the Pen: Literature and Politics During The Great Depression
at the Museum of the City of New York

During the economic crisis of the 1930s, the written word became an activist political tool. America’s “proletarian literature” movement produced novels, poems, essays, and manifestos that promoted social reform and even political revolution. Why did many writers feel the need to become political and what was the effect of their work? Join noted essayist, fiction writer, film critic, and poet Phillip Lopate for a conversation about literature and politics with distinguished critic Morris Dickstein, Professor of English, CUNY, and Linda Gordon, Professor of History, NYU, author of Dorothea Lange: A Life Beyond Limits (Norton, 2009).

Co-sponsored by the Department of History, NYU and the CUNY Center for the Humanities and presented in conjunction with The Puffin Foundation's Activist New York exhibition at the museum.
