  • Conversations with Cabrera: Deaf Republic Conversations with Cabrera: Deaf Republic

Unscripted and informal — unearthing leadership’s thinking behind the big ideas taking shape across the Institute and trends likely to define our future — this series is meant to capture candid conversations between President Ángel Cabrera and thought leaders across Georgia Tech and beyond. 

The April 20th event will feature Professor Ilya Kaminsky in conversation with President Ángel Cabrera. Professor Ilya Kaminsky is the author of New York Times Notable Book, Deaf Republic. 

This is a hybrid event with limited physically distant seating at the Price Gilbert Memorial Library Scholars Event Network Theater.

Praise for Deaf Republic: 

“I was stunned by Ilya Kaminsky’s Deaf Republic, lyric poems presented as a play in two acts, set in a country in crisis, inspired both by Odessa, where Kaminsky grew up, and America, where he now lives. It’s a book about censorship, political apathy, torture — “the nakedness / of the whole nation” — but also about tomato sandwiches, the birth of a daughter and the sudden, almost shocking joys of longtime married life.”
