Neil Shister - Radical Ritual: How Burning Man Changed the World

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, July 30, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Can Burning Man change the world? Its devotees believe it can. Shister, a former journalist for outlets like Time and the Miami Herald, was skeptical. After participating in the festival six times between 2013 and 2018 and interviewing many of the key figures involved with it, he now sees it as the vanguard of a crucial new social paradigm. His book takes us behind the scenes at Black Rock City, combining powerful reporting with compelling stories to demonstrate how Burning Man blends conservative ideals of self-reliance and accountability with progressive ideas of inclusion, consensual decision making, and collaborative endeavor to create a postmodern fusion of sixties humanism and high-tech Digital Era magic.
