Where Bright Thoughts Like Rivers Flow: Storytelling and Writing With and For the Cherokee Nation
April 5 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Department of Writing and Rhetoric at the University of Central Florida hosts a virtual presentation by Dr. Emily Legg. Through a careful weaving of traditional Cherokee stories, cultural practices of duyuk’ta, and archival recovery work, Dr. Legg illustrates the participatory nature of Indigenous storytelling and the ways builds and sustains a community of knowledge-makers across time and place.
Dr. Legg is a Cherokee Nation citizen and assistant professor of intercultural rhetoric at Miami University in Ohio. Her work centers on Indigenous methodologies of storytelling as a research practice in writing and rhetoric, and she brings these methodologies to historiographic recovery work.
Registration is required. Funding for this program is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the University of Central Florida. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
