Resisting fixed identities is at the heart of creative endeavor. This might be especially true of gender. Professor Amy Hungerford talks to Hilton Als, Helen Garner, and Tessa Hadley about how this resistance comes to shape the work of the writer.

Amy Hungerford is Professor of English and Dean of the Humanities Division at Yale. Her latest book is Making Literature Now (2016), about the worlds of contemporary literature and the conditions under which writers create new work today.

Co-sponsored by the New Haven Free Public Library and the Department of English.
