Fans of The New Yorker, rejoice! Pulitzer Prize-winning television critic Emily Nussbaum will speak on campus June 1 as part of the Contemporary Thought Speaker Series (CTSS). The group's fifth event of the year will be held in Harris Hall 107 and feature a discussion moderated by Professor Nick Davis, who specializes in narrative cinema, starting at 7 p.m., followed by a Q&A session.
For those unfamiliar with Nussbaum's work, she's been writing about television for The New Yorker since 2011, including pieces on popular shows such as Girls, Mad Men and Scandal. She won the Pultizer Prize for criticism in 2016.
“Many of us are fans of Emily’s innovative pieces for the New Yorker,” co-chair of CTSS Samantha Rose said in press release. “Her approach to TV criticism is as unique as it is enjoyable to read and her incredible taste never falters.”
Seating for the event is first-come, first-serve, and tickets are not required. Doors open at 6 p.m.
