A conversation between Arlie Hochschild and Archon Fung.
At the Brattle Theater in Cambridge, the award-winning sociologist Arlie Hochschild talked to Harvard Kennedy School professor and academic dean Archon Fung for the paperback release of her bestselling book, Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right—a finalist for the National Book Award. This podcast features an edited excerpt of their conversation.
...we need your help. Confronting the many challenges of COVID-19—from the medical to the economic, the social to the political—demands all the moral and deliberative clarity we can muster. In Thinking in a Pandemic, we’ve organized the latest arguments from doctors and epidemiologists, philosophers and economists, legal scholars and historians, activists and citizens, as they think not just through this moment but beyond it. While much remains uncertain, Boston Review’s responsibility to public reason is sure. That’s why you’ll never see a paywall or ads. It also means that we rely on you, our readers, for support.
