Literary Salon: Speaking for the Past – Composing Historical Scripts

When: Thu., Nov. 8, 7-9 p.m. 2018

First-person historical interpretation is a powerful and impactful teaching tool for groups of all ages, and is an effective way of engaging modern students with aspects of the past which can be difficult to grasp. Composing accurate scripts presents different challenges, particularly if the subject is a person who had been historically silenced. In this Literary Salon, historical interpreters Valerie Davis and Debbie Phillips will present on the processes of accurate script-writing and portrayal, particularly for women and persons of color, who are often silent in the written record.

Price: Free.
