Zizek-Peterson Debate in Detroit?


WHY NOT? We’re promoting the idea of holding the big Slavoj Zizek versus Jordan Peterson debate in the reawakening city of Detroit.

THE CONTEST will pit the planet’s most famous philosopher, Slavoj “The Beast” Zizek, against the world’s most formidable psychologist, Jordan “The Slasher” Peterson.

BOTH are renowned heavyweight intellects.

BOTH are well-practiced masters of communication.

THE EVENT would be akin to putting two undefeated heavyweight fighters into the same ring.

NO ONE except New Pop Lit could give the confrontation the coverage it deserves and the attention it needs.

WE are preparing to stage it!

We have a tentative venue selected, a promotional strategy in place, and will be contacting representatives of both esteemed personages to make our case.
