Shaun Scott with Minh Nguyen
Millennials and the Moments that Made Us

A generation on the move, a country on the brink, and a young author’s search to find out how we got here. Shaun Scott presents a cultural history of the United States in his book Millennials and the Moments That Made Us: A Cultural History of the U.S. from 1982-Present, lending us insight into the factors that have shaped the development of the Millennial image and outlook. He is joined onstage by freelance writer and curator of exhibitions Minh Nguyen to share a relatable pop culture history that critiques the late-capitalist status quo the Millennial generation inherited. Scott takes us on a tour of the music, films, books, TV shows, technology, and numerous other factors that have defined this emerging wave of leaders and workers. Join Scott and Nguyen for a timely modern portrait of our nation as seen through the eyes of the largest, most diverse, and most disprivileged generation in American history.
Shaun Scott is a Seattle-based writer and filmmaker. His work has appeared in Jacobin Magazine, Quartz, and Sports Illustrated. He is a columnist for City Arts Magazine, where writes the semi-weekly thread “Faded Signs,” a reflection on the popular culture of late capitalism.

Minh Nguyen is a freelance writer, curator of exhibitions and programs, and former Town Hall Artist-in-Residence. She has collaborated with Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Arts and Lectures, and The Alice Gallery, and her writing has appeared in periodicals such as Seattle Weekly, AQNB, and Art in America.

Presented by Town Hall Seattle as part of the Arts & Culture series.
