The Middlebrow: A Panel Discussion at the New School

Adjust

A discussion with critics Ruth Franklin, Christine Smallwood, and Jennifer Szalai on Wednesday, March 20, at 6:30 p.m.

This symposium will examine the cultural phenomenon of the middlebrow. During the height of middlebrow culture — the postwar era of the Book-of-the-Month Club — critical mandarins made great fun of the cultural aspirations of middle-class Americans. But if, as many argue, we have since undergone a great cultural leveling, is that entirely for the good? Do we miss the middlebrow? Or does it still exist in the form of high-end television and “accessible” literary fiction?

Join Harper’s Magazine associate editor Christopher Beha on Wednesday, March 20, at 6:30 p.m. a discussion with literary critics Ruth FranklinChristine Smallwood, and Jennifer Szalai. Sponsored by the School of Writing at the New School.
