Marjorie Garber: The Use and Abuse of Literature

This is an Archive of a Past Event

Garber's talk will be based on her latest book "The Use and Abuse of Literature," a tour de force about our culture in crisis. Her aim is to reclaim literature from the margins of our personal, educational, and professional lives, to restore it to the center as a fierce, radical way of thinking.

Marjorie Garber is the William R. Kenan, Jr. professor of English and Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University and chair of the Program in Dramatic Arts.
