Writers in Wartime: Role & Responsibility
Discussion on the Role and Responsibility of Writers in Wartime
Description: William Styron leads a conversation at the University of Southern California on the responsibility of writers during wartime. The participants discuss the issue of censorship (both government and academic), the impact of writers on the public's perception of recent events, the role the U.S. has played in the world, and other relevant topics. To initiate the discussion, Mr. Styron reads from an article on the 1968 democratic convention in Chicago he wrote for the New York Review of Books. The event was held at USC's Annenberg School for Communication in Los Angeles.
