LISTEN: Rebecca Solnit on sexual assault, Parkland and internet culture

Posted By on Mon, Mar 19, 2018 at 2:02 PM


Essayist, cultural critic and activist Rebecca Solnit, who is known for the prodigious breadth of her interests and her feminist critiques of contemporary culture, is scheduled to give a lecture at Tulane University's McAlister Auditorium beginning at 7 p.m. March 19. Ahead of that appearance, she gave a nearly hour-long interview to WRBH-FM's David Benedetto for the radio station's "The Writer's Forum" program.

The interview, which spans a range of topics almost as vast as Solnit's own body of work, aired over the weekend, but you can catch it on the station's Soundcloud. There, the writer and host cover Solnit's writing history; her thoughts on the mass shooting at Parkland, Florida; the future of American activism and progressivism; what it was like to work on Unfathomable City: A New Orleans Atlas; viral media; the language surrounding sexual harassment and assault and more.

The full interview is embedded below.
