Kari Lerum analyzes “The White Lotus” for Ms. Magazine


IAS faculty member Kari Lerum’s essay, “The White Lotus: Lessons on Black Lives Matter, Reparations, and Queer Liberation” was recently published on the digital site for Ms. Magazine.

In contrast to previous reviews which cast the popular TV mini-series, “The White Lotus,” as simply an entertaining satire of wealthy Whiteness, Lerum argues that the series offers useful curriculum for White progressives, especially along the topics of Black Lives Matter, Reparations for indigenous Hawaiian people, and notions of Queer Liberation.
