Writing My Life in History and in Practice

Lecture Description

In this lecture/discussion (with large and small audiences), I propose a set of questions to help people begin to see their lives as historically significant and to connect their personal to larger historical forces. We work our way through as many of the questions as time allows (allocating several five minute blocks to actual writing) and participants leave with a better understanding of their historical context even if they don’t want actually to write their own life stories.
