Cultural Heritage Through Image: Finding the Ancient and Medieval in Fitchburg
Thursday, February 8th, 2018 5:30pm
Interactive talk by Dr. Kisha Tracy

Professor Kisha Tracy teaches medieval literature at Fitchburg State. How do you make the medieval period relevant for today’s Generation Z? One way is to connect them with local history and their own families’ experiences. Tracy will present a photo journey through local and other New England history at this talk that encourages you to think about what culture and heritage mean and how the ancient to medieval is related to the local. Participants will participate in a digital exhibition and can see it by clicking here.
