Former People Speak… About Mid-20th Century Modernism

We start our series about Boomer Modernism’s rise and fall with an opposed pair as foils: Susan Sontag and Christopher Hitchens.  We also will be discussing Mid-20th Modernists in the context of the “Lost Generation,” “The Greatest Generation,” and the Boomers as well as their rise and fall.  We suggest reading Russell Jacoby’s The Last Intellectuals for the context for late modernist public intellectuals decline.

We are also returning to releasing our podcast on Youtube, eventually with shows from the now defunct podcast RSS being made into videos and uploaded.
