Dan Kennedy & Joel Dinerstein

Sunday, June 3, 2018 - 9:00pm

Print newspapers today are very much on the decline and with them is the critical journalism they support. Some papers are struggling to make the switch to digital versions, but have yet to completely succeed in making enough revenue to keep the paper solvent into the future. Tonight on Inquiry, we speak with DAN KENNEDY, associate professor in the School of Journalism at Northeastern University and panelist on WGBH’s Beat The Press. Tonight we will be talking about Kennedy’s important (and entertaining!) new book: THE RETURN OF THE MOGULS: HOW JEFF BEZOS AND JOHN HENRY ARE REMAKING NEWSPAPERS FOR THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY.  NB: Dan Kennedy is coming to Worcester! On June 7 at 7PM he will be doing a presentation about this book at Annie’s Book Stop, 65 James Street.

Tonight on Inquiry we continue our conversation with JOEL DINERSTEIN. He was the writer and curator of the American Cool exhibit at the Smithsonian Portrait Gallery. He is a professor of English at Tulane University. His new book is THE ORIGINS OF COOL IN POSTWAR AMERICA. Tonight in PART 2 we talk about the concept of cool in Film Noir and post war cinematic icons of cool like Bogart. Mitchum, Brando and Dean.
