From the Mouths of Millennials: Taboo Topics
This study group will be a weekly discussion of contemporary short stories, essays, poems, and autobiographical sketches recommended by Millennials specifically for OLLI learners. Our collection of texts illustrates and grapples with complex and nuanced concerns around topics such as police reform, prison abolition, class politics, gender, and capitalism, among others—concerns which they want to bring to the attention of other generations. Our discussions of the texts will include the significant current events informing them, the ways in which the writers navigate social differences, and the reasons why Millennials may have recommended the pieces in the first place. Each week’s short selection will be sent out to participants via email one week in advance of our discussion of the piece.
