SEISMIC HISTORIES IN NADIA OWUSU’S AFTERSHOCKS ~ Live on Zoom/YouTube
September 15, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Join Nadia Owusu and Laure Astourian for a conversation on the reverberations of history in Owusu’s widely praised memoir Aftershocks (2021). They will discuss Owusu’s choice to weave family histories — the multi-generational effects of the colonization of Ghana and the Armenian Genocide — into her personal narrative. Learn about Owusu’s research process, the importance of historical reckoning, and the parallels between seemingly disparate histories.
