Trust, Freedom, and Cancel Culture
Originally broadcast at 10:30 a.m. ET Wednesday, July 14, 2021.
Christine Rosen is senior writer at Commentary magazine and chair of the Colloquy on Knowledge, Technology & Culture at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia. She is also a senior editor of The New Atlantis, a journal founded by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. She joins the Chautauqua Lecture Series to examine the theme of “Trust, Society and Democracy,” what has been come to be known as “cancel culture” and how trust in one another can and may be renewed — especially when it comes to younger generations.
Rosen’s writing has appeared in publications such as The New York Times Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The New Republic, Democracy Journal, Prospect, Hedgehog Review, MIT Technology Review, and The New England Journal of Medicine. She is the author of Preaching Eugenics: Religious Leaders and the American Eugenics Movement; My Fundamentalist Education; and The Extinction of Experience, which is forthcoming from W.W. Norton.
Rosen holds a Ph.D. in History from Emory University.
This program is made possible by the Charles and Gail Gamble Lecture Endowment and the William and Julia Clinger Lectureship.
