welcomes a private interview with journalist Kathryn Schulz

Published by | Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

This year is the proud season sponsor of UCSB’s Arts & Lectures series, and we were privileged to have one of their lecturers, Kathryn Schulz, participate in a personal interview at our facility before her public appearance through the UCSB program.

Ms. Schulz is an award-winning journalist whose freelance magazine work has appeared in such publications as The New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, and The Nation. As an international journalist, Schulz has explored Japan, the Middle East, and both Central and South America, and was awarded a Pew Fellowship in International Journalism in 2004.

During her interview with co-founder Lynda Weinman, Schulz discusses why humans are so obsessed with being right, the relationship between wrongness and the creative process, and what her goals were when she sat down to write her book, Being Wrong—Adventures in the Margin of Error.

    Kathryn Schulz has done us a favor by describing how creative people struggle with learning things in a systematic, methodical manner (that are also tinged with correctness, smartness and other social mores). I appreciate bc it humanizes the content that logically constructed programs contain and makes it easily digestible and even sometimes delicious! It was also nice to “meet” (see onscreen) the real Lynda sponsoring this interview. It’s apparent that her interest lies in exploring creative people’s methods and motivations including Ms. Schulz’. Hats off to her!
