Evening at Egan Friday Fall Lecture Series, "What shall we do with our histories?”

Juneau, Alaska
Date of Press Release: October 30, 2012

 Friday, November 2, 7 p.m. Egan Library, 
Ernestine Hayes, Assistant Professor of English

This acclaimed address, delivered by Hayes at venues such as the Association for Literature and the Environment Conference and the International Polar Year gathering presents the recent history of Lingit Aani and examines its relevance to current circumstances from a perspective unfamiliar to commonly held beliefs.

"My talk asks listeners to consider history from a perspective that is unfamiliar and perhaps even somewhat uncomfortable. When we place ourselves in new contexts, our views may shift. When we look at history from a different point of view, we can also look at the present--and the future--with new understanding."
--Ernestine Hayes, American Book Award Recipient

All Evening at Egan lectures are simulcast on UATV Cable Channel 11. Live via streaming video.
