American Pulp

A talk by Paula Rabinowitz at University of Minnesota

March 5th at 4:00 p.m. Mandel Atrium

Paula Rabinowitz ’74 is a professor in the Department of English at the University of Minnesota. Her new book, “American Pulp: How Paperbacks Brought Modernism to Main Street,” tells the story of the midcentury golden age of pulp paperbacks and how they brought modernism to Main Street, democratized literature and ideas, spurred social mobility and helped readers fashion new identities. Drawing on extensive original research, Paula unearths the far-reaching political, social and aesthetic impact of the pulps between the late 1930s and early 1960s.
