Description

This audiovisual recording from March 28, 2008 as part of the 39h annual UND Writers Conference: “Revolutions” features Russell Banks, Junot Díaz, and Alice Fulton in the panel discussion “Revolutions in Time.” Russell Banks begins by explaining the writing of Cloudsplitter and the novel form as it relates to history and time. The panelists discuss the American tendency to ignore aspects the past and the present and selectively remember history. Alice Fulton reads her poem “When I was Interrupted by the Bells” to demonstrate time as a source of inspiration and a rich subject of art as a way of approaching human existence. The panelists also discuss the human response to art as an interruption of time and an out-of-body experience, simultaneity of existence, and the historical repercussions of social revolution.

Moderated by Laurel Reuter.
