The Ethics of Now: Anita Sarkeesian
Media critic Anita Sarkeesian's clarity during GamerGate and after have made us more reflective but have also garnered her death threats and ongoing harassment. With a powerful mix of intellectual insight and striking courage, Sarkeesian illuminates how the virtual becomes the real. She brings a critic's eye to the video game industry and shows how sexism in popular culture has repercussions in everyday life and politics.
The Ethics of Now is a series of conversations between Duke historian Adriane Lentz Smith and a range of artists, advocates, and authors that explore the ethical challenges facing the Durham and Duke communities.
