This month: Radical newspapers, independent publishing, and social justice with Rosemarie Dombrowski

What does radical publishing look like in the age of digital media? What kind of power lies in polemic? How can literature function as reportage? What is the social responsibility of literature? Does it have one? Who says? Is there anyone or anything that doesn’t have some kind of social responsibility?
