An Academic Panel on Hipsters … Really?!?!

n+1 Presents in partnership with the New School

“What Was the Hipster?”

An Afternoon Panel, Symposium, and Historical Investigation

–Next Saturday, April 11, 2009–

Mark Greif (n+1)
Jace Clayton (dj/Rupture)
Christian Lorentzen (Harper’s)
+ Special Guests TBA

Free and Open to the Public

Who was the turn-of-the-century hipster? Who is free enough of the hipster taint to write the hipster’s history without contempt or nostalgia? Why do we declare the hipster moment over–that, in fact, it had ended by 2003–when the hipster’s “global brand” has just reached its apotheosis?

Short presentations will be followed by audience debate, comment, and recollection, to be transcribed and published in book form this year.

Saturday, April 11, 2009, 2 pm – 4 pm.
The New School University, Theresa Lang Center, Arnhold Hall, 55 West 13th Street, 2nd floor.
NOTE: Really!?!?
