      Join Yale Alumni Health Network President Dr. Jamie Wells ’96 in a fireside chat with Emma Goldberg ’16, New York Times writer and author of “Life on the Line: Young Doctors Come of Age in a Pandemic,” coming out early June.

      In March 2020, when New York City’s medical schools decided to accelerate their graduations so fourth-year students could move to the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, Goldberg began having daily conversations with a group of six early graduates – the first generation to take the Hippocratic Oath via Zoom – who were unleashed into emergency rooms and intensive care units across the city. “Life On the Line” tells their stories, and the story of a city and healthcare system in crisis.

      This program has been brought to the Yale community in partnership with the Yale Alumni Health Network and the YAA Shared Interest Groups.

      James Baldwin's position as one of the most important voices of the Civil Rights movement is uncontested. Indeed, he might be the most eloquent of our prophets, the singular critical eye that saw race relations in the American context for what they were, what they are, and what they will always be. But the range of his corrective lens, as it were, also extends to the unprecedented ways in which he changed the queer landscape. His formidable Giovanni's Room appeared at a time when few American writers could even reference, let alone write explicitly about, queer desire. But Baldwin did, and continued to do so in later works, asserting a fierce intersectionality between blackness and queerness that is often overlooked. This lecture and conversation hope to illuminate the ways in which Baldwin's presentation of queer identity has been integral to how we view and present ourselves in the world.
