    Abstract:
    Zadie Smith touched down at Brandeis because Swing Time was this year's New Student Book Forum selection. It made for a busy day: on top of the podcast, she spoke to faculty and undergraduates at two different events. So, lots of material to discuss. We do our best to unpack Zadie Smith's take on sincerity, authenticity and human sacredness; the "golden ticket" dirty secret behind our hypocritical academic meritocracy; surveillance capitalism as the "biggest capital grab of human experience in history;" and her genealogy of the novel. If we had to sum the day up with a few adjectives (and we do): funny, provocative, resplendent, chill, generous, cantankerous.
