The Roundtable Discussion Series
Rethinking Native, Stranger, and Home with William Edelglass and the Brattleboro Words Project
Friday April 17 2020, 6:00 PM at 118 Elliot
118 Elliot Street, Brattleboro, VT 05301
The distinction between native and stranger, often used to justify exclusion, is grounded in a strong sense of belonging to place. On Friday April 17, 6:00 PM at 118 Elliot in Brattleboro, local scholar William Edleglass will give a talk exploring contemporary theories and practices of place as inclusive and dynamic. In these theories, the practice of place arises through the stories that are told. Places can become inclusive through a multiplicity of stories. Drawing on these theories, participants will look at the Brattleboro Words Project as a practice of place. As part of the Project’s Roundtable Discussion Series, this talk is free and open to the public.
