Panel Series / “The Magazine as Medium,” with Lori Cole, Kim Conaty, Hal Foster, Dan Fox, Ruth Graham, Silvia Kolbowski, Carey Snyder, Lorin Stein, and Betsy Sussler

Dates: 9 April, 11 May, and 18 June 2015; 7–9 pm
Cabinet, 300 Nevins Street, Brooklyn (map and directions here)
. No RSVP necessary
Organized by Lori Cole

Please join us for a three-part series exploring the interview, the questionnaire, and the letter to the editor—three frequently overlooked forms that are nevertheless constitutive of many magazines. Each of these genres serves as a site of interaction between editors, contributors, and readers and is often used to assert or reinforce a magazine’s platform. The series will contextualize the development of each seemingly minor form and investigate its present uses in order to consider the role that it has had in articulating the identity of print publications across history.
