What Your Home Says About the World: Humanities Washington Talk

Saturday, February 22, 2020, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Inspired by our Especially Special exhibition, please join us for this free event hosted by Humanities Washington. Whether it's teacups or televisions, what you decide to keep--and not keep--in your home provides deep insights about you, your family, and society itself. Join sociologist and writer Michelle Janning to discover how home spaces and objects tell the story of what's happening in contemporary families. From stuffed animals to smartphones to love letters, the objects in our homes represent what's going on in the stages of family life. Featuring real stories that bring her research to life, this talk highlights what we need to know about today's changing family roles and relationships, how objects have their own cultural biographies, and the ways that group inequalities matter in the larger collection of our family stories. Discover why stuff matters to families, and why material goods are symbols of so much more. RSVP:
