Robert Christgau will be interviewed by David Shumway, Professor of Literary and Cultural Studies, Carnegie Mellon, and author of Rock Star: The Making of Cultural Icons from Elvis to Springsteen.

The interview will focus on rock criticism’s beginnings during the 1960s and its evolution through the punk and hip-hop years into the a present where it takes many different forms--some explicitly commercial, others anything but, almost all beset by the economic challenges of journalism in the internet age.
