CANCELED High Stakes Culture Series: "Cultural Contagions: Xenophobia, Scapegoating, and Coronavirus"

Over the past few years, “culture wars” have been ignited across the country. Activists from all points of the political spectrum, even the President of the United States himself, are turning to beloved cultural objects to stake a claim for their differing beliefs in a politically fraught moment.

What is at stake in the ways we understand culture and cultural conflict? High Stakes Culture, a series presented by the Institute for the Humanities and the Humanities Collaboratory, brings humanities perspectives to bear on current debates.

Featuring Alexandra Stern (American culture, history, women's studies, and obstetrics and gynecology), Ian Shin (American culture), and Yi-Li Wu (women's studies, history) with Angela Dillard (Afroamerican and African studies, Residential College) as moderator.
