What is Literary Activism? José Orduña & Doug Unger in conversation
UNLV's Rogers Literature & Law (RLL) 101
Wednesday, February 28, 7 P.M.

José Orduña & Doug Unger

UNLV writers José Orduña, author of The Weight of Shadows: A Memoir of Immigration and Displacement, and Douglas Unger, author of the political-issue based novels Leaving the Land and Voices from Silence, talk in an open forum about literary activism. What is the place in American society for writers who combine art with activism? How can literary writing engage struggles for justice in an era of militarized borders, racism, and class oppression? Which writer-activists do we consider exemplary in combining high literary quality and effective advocacy?
