Reading by Alicia Puglionesi

When: Thu., Dec. 8, 7:30-8:15 p.m. 2022

Popular narratives of American history conceal as much as they reveal. In Whose Ruins tells another story: winding through the US landscape, from Native American earthworks in West Virginia to the Manhattan Project in New Mexico, this history is a tour of sites that were mined for an empire’s power. This book illustrates the way American myths have overwritten Indigenous histories, binding us into an unsustainable future. Alicia Puglionesi is a writer and historian and author of Common Phantoms: An American History of Psychic Science. This virtual event is streamed via Zoom.
