Description

In this audiovisual recording from Thursday, September 17, 2020, as part of the 51st Annual UND Writers Conference: “The Working Classes,” Roy G. Guzmán, Richard Tsong-Taatarii, Matt Young, and Jenny Zhang participate in a panel called “Class and Art.” The panelists discuss how they interpret the conference theme, invisible and emotional labor, the difficulty those in the working classes might face in making art, and the repercussions of artistic works that use the experiences of the working classes in a manipulative way, as well as the ethical responsibilities writers and artists have to confront those depictions. The panelists also respond to audience questions about how those within the working classes can express their thoughts and views on events that often happen within their community, like the Minneapolis George Floyd protests of 2020, how to make time for art in a busy life, and how to deal with anxiety and writer’s block.

Moderated by Dr. Patrick T. Henry, Department of English.
