Colloquium: Dr. Charles Menzies, “People of the Saltwater”

Dr. Charles Menzies’ People of the Saltwater is a combination of personal narrative and ethnographic monograph. This talk explores the complication, advantage, disappointment and enjoyment involved in writing home: both in the sense of writing home to an audience familiar with the subject matter and writing about home to an audience unfamiliar with the place, people, and history.

Location: ANSO 134
