The Body is the Text - One Woman’s American Narrative with Carolyn Randall Williams, author, chef, activist & teacher

Elizabeth D. Rockwell Distinguished Lecture and Reception: The Body Is the Text - One Woman’s American Narrative with Caroline Randall Williams, When Caroline Randall Williams wrote that her body was a monument, that was only the beginning of the thought. The body does so much work past the work. So much telling past the shape of the thing. From what we feed ourselves, to how we tell the truth of where our bodies have been, what they’ve done, so much can be read on the body, of the body’s story. This talk will explore Professor William’s unique take on American identity through this fresh, embodied lens. Sponsored by the Elizabeth D. Rockwell Center for Ethics & Leadership at the Hobby School Registration link
