Subject – The New Inquiry
Guest – Atossa Abrahamian
Thinkers and writers of our generation face an unprecedented set of cultural realities. The growing supply of career academics has flooded the university job market, and 21st century technologies have thrown traditional media into crisis. Although the future of higher education and print remains obscure, these cultural sea changes have yielded one definite side effect: an abundance of young writers and thinkers resolved to pursue a public intellectual life for its own sake–a pursuit ordered and enabled by Internet technology.
The New Inquiry is a space for discussion that aspires to enrich cultural and public life by putting all available resources–both digital and material–toward the promotion and exploration of ideas.
