Telling Our Stories of Home is a 6-day conference-festival which will bring together outstanding national and international faculty, activists, and performers to offer critical and artistic approaches through a series of workshops, presentations, films, and performances to engage in public and feminist discourses on home.
The event will end with the inaugural reading of the commissioned play, Torn Asunder, produced from the scholarly text, Help Me to Find My People, which examines the quest of newly emancipated people to reunite their families and reconstitute their homes after the disruptions of both enslavement and the U.S. Civil War.
For details, see the flyer below. For more information on the performance, and to secure tickets, visit The Process Series Website.
Jane Thrailkill, UNC professor of English and CPA’s Andrew W. Mellon Distinguished Scholar, says of Professor Perucci :
I am thrilled that Tony will be our next Curatorial Fellow. His work brings together performance and politics in exciting ways, and he’s fearless about taking on difficult topics. For our 2016-2017 season he’ll be focusing on the theme of resistance, with an eye to activism on campus.
