Lang Scholar in Residence (http://newschool.edu/lang), Carol Gilligan, hosts a public conversation about gender and this election with Wendy Puriefoy, educator, philanthropist, Ford Foundation Fellow; Janet Reitman, Investigative Journalist and Contributing Editor at Rolling Stone, covering politics and the election; and New School students Esther Franke, Laura Age, and Ali Shames-Dawson.
Together they will address the questions: Is this potentially a turning point in American democracy? Are we witnessing the end-game of patriarchy? Is a gender conversation crucial? Who will vote for Hillary?
The Scholar in Residence program is a series of events that let Lang students engage with a prominent academic scholar. The series features large public dialogues with leading intellectuals and scholars and small, hands-on workshops and seminars focused on immersing students in the scholar’s practices.
