Co-organized by the Franklin Humanities Institute and the Center for Philosophy, Art, and Literature.

Please join the FHI and PAL for a day-long event addressing the function of the literary magazine/literary journal at the current moment. Members of the editorial collective of the New York-based journal n+1 and writers and members of the Kenya-based Kwani Trust will participate in a set of panels engaging the enduring and changing social and political significance of literary journals, the role of writers as public intellectuals, and the importance of literary writing in cultural shaping and social critique.
