Richard Sennett: Citizen Sociologist

For nearly 50 years, Richard Sennett has been one of our most respected thinkers about cities, labor, and culture. Author of such classics of sociology as “The Fall of Public Man” and “The Hidden Injuries of Class,” Sennett has more recently meditated on what it means to really make something in our automated, consumerist world. Sennett will take a bird's-eye view of citizenship today, and then artist Geof Oppenheimer will join him in conversation.
