The title of this post comes from Naomi Baron’s Words Onscreen which will serve as the basis of an upcoming Interchange program. “Later also headache” was a description given by a German respondent as to a negative aspect of “reading onscreen.”
Here’s a look at the schedule for the next month or so, but you can’t really hold me to any of this…life is a fickle pickle after all.
[UPDATE! See I told you so…]
Orson Welles. Guests, Jonathan Rosenbaum and James Naremore
6/16: “Framing the Self: Conversations About Identity”
This episode of Interchange brings together two episodes that first aired on WFHB’s The Custom House. Part one features a conversation with John Eakin about writing autobiography (and his study of it, including the ethics of the practice); Part two is a discussion with local Pigeon Hill photographer Jeff Wolin whose work pairs his subjects’ narrations of themselves with his portraits of them both “then” and “now.”
