Tickets and Reservations
Dr. Joe Chuman interviews Eyal Press, a Puffin Foundation Writing Fellow at the Type Media Center, and the author of Dirty Work: Essential Jobs and the Hidden Toll of Inequality in America. Press presents a paradigm-shifting view of the moral landscape of contemporary America through the stories of people who perform society’s most ethically troubling jobs: drone pilots who carry out targeted assassinations, undocumented immigrants who staff the “kill floors” of industrial slaughterhouses, and guards who patrol the wards of the United States’ most violent and abusive prisons. Eyal Press has received a James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism, an Andrew Carnegie fellowship, and is a contributor to the New Yorker, the New York Times, and numerous other publications.
