IDEAS THAT MATTER Salon Series: Poiesis in the Golden Age of Television

Thursday, September 14 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm

USC Village, McCarthy MPR 1100

Join Dr. Patience Moll for a conversation with special guest Ali Laventhol, Writer and Supervising Producer of the show Famous in Love.

Engaging Aristotle’s theory of poiesis, or literary creation, we’ll discuss what’s at stake in the displacement of cinema by TV, how budding writers can break into the biz, what to study if you want to write for TV, and why binge-watching should be understood as both a philosophical and a political experience.

Sponsored by the Thematic Option Honors Program & the McCarthy Honors Residential College
