Here’s a message from VCS Department Chair Tom Huhn about this month’s VCS Chair Reading:
I’m very happy to recommend this Alex Ross New Yorker piece on Walter Benjamin and Theodor Adorno. It’s informative and I think mostly fair. For those of you who are more or less new to these two thinkers, I recommend this article as a good introduction to the two of them by way of a consideration regarding their views on the nature of popular culture. I look forward to learning what you think of the article.
