Kiese Laymon will talk with Courtney R. Baker about whether the actual histories of American colleges and universities should be ripe sites for Black American horror and comedic narratives. Laymon will create a live novella and a live essay during this talk, while questioning the ethics of making art “for” an audience longing for both titillation and innocence from the horrific histories of Black Americans in and around American institutions of higher learning.
Kiese Laymon, 2020–2021 William and Flora Hewlett Foundation Fellow, Radcliffe Institute, and Hubert H. McAlexander Professor of English and Creative Writing, University of Mississippi
Courtney R. Baker, HR '96, associate professor, Department of English, University of California, Riverside
