3/29/19 "Collective Stories: Memoirists on Stories Not Solely Their Own" 4:30-5:45PM
As memoirists, we are often faced with the task of examining the experiences—and the people—that have shaped us into complex beings. What happens when, as part of this process, we collectively interrogate our past and attempt to make sense of painful family memories? Panelists reach across geography, culture, history, and politics to offer insight into diverse ways to research and write the intergenerational narrative and address the ethics of curating a story that reaches far beyond one's own.
3/30/19 "Scattered: Homes Throughout the Asian Diaspora" 10:30-11:45AM
Three acclaimed memoirists—graphic and prose—hailing from three very different parts of the Asian diaspora come together to read excerpts from their recent works and to discuss what it means to write about the many versions of homes that take on a life of their own within these books. When homes become ethereal, bonds among women and between generations help to solidify history in time and space throughout the Asian experience.
4/6/19 The Muse and the Marketplace. Park Plaza Hotel, Boston, MA. 4:30-5:30PM
Memoir writing often stems from (or is steeped) in #MeToo-themed trauma, like harassment, assault, abuse, or incest. But what does it mean to write those stories in nonfiction, and move through the steps of sharing them with the world? In this discussion, we will examine various contemporary memoirs where authors have written about such hard truths. We will tackle questions like: How do details function in the writing of traumatic histories and stories? What personal identifying markers should I include? How much psychic distance is necessary in writing these stories? What is the potential backlash, both online and in person, and how can I mitigate this or be prepared? Come prepared for a frank and important discussion.
