After the literature roundtable with Sarah Schulman, I learned one thing or two. She focused her topic of gentrification along with reading an excerpt from her book, Cosmopolitan. I learned how New York had changed a lot from her perspective and it has caused many issues such as homelessness, and it tends to continue as we move forward in the future. Older and outdated buildings are being deconstructed and replaced with modern version which also replaced the people who lived there. How can we prevent it as well as continue modernized the city? After the reading, I liked how she wants everybody in the audience to participate and be part of it by sharing one of their works. Questions from the audience also deepen the topic of gentrification and others related to Cosmopolitan. She gave her full understanding in her answers and was able to answer all the questions that was given to her.
