One week before Election Day, New York Times columnist Jamelle Bouie will talk with Oregon Humanities about democracy, moments of transition, and the significance of this particularly charged political moment. Bouie has been an observer of political culture and someone whose work has shaped culture—in print, on television, on twitter, and even through his photography—and as we talk about the political moment, we'll also explore the relationship between politics and culture.
Join us October 27 for a conversation on voting and democratic transitions with New York Times opinion columnist and CBS News political analyst Jamelle Bouie.
Join us September 29 for a virtual conversation with artists Anis Mojgani, Demian DinéYazhi', and Sharita Towne.
While art is always political, the rancor and unrest of US politics in recent years have moved many artists to engage with politics more directly. In this online conversation, we'll talk with three artists whose work often deals with political themes about the intersections of art and politics: Oregon Poet Laureate Anis Mojgani, poet and visual artist Demian DinéYazhi', and multidisciplinary artist and educator Sharita Towne.
At Oregon Humanities, we believe in the power of people in rooms listening, learning and struggling together. Consider This is one of the ways we make that happen.
