Humanities Washington: What Your Home Says about the World

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Event Details

North Central Regional Library and The Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center are proud to bring you Humanities Washington presenter, Michelle Janning. Janning's program What Your Home Says About the World explores how what you decide to keep, and not to keep, in your home provides deep insight about you, your family, and society itself. 

Discover how home spaces and objects tell the story of what's happening in contemporary families. From stuffed animals to smartphones to love letters, the objects in our homes represent whats going on in the stages of family life. Featuring real stories that bring her research to life, this talk highlights what we need to know about today's changing family roles and relationships, how objects have their own cultural biographies, and the ways that group inequalities matter in the larger collection of our family stories.

Discover why stuff matters to families, and why material goods are symbols of so much more.
