Excavating Memory: Writing Workshop w/ Elizabeth Mosier

When: Sat., Nov. 3, 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. 2018

When writing personal narrative, it can be easy to overlook or discount the most telling details from your life because they are familiar or too commonplace to warrant notice. But for historical archaeologists, everyday objects are material evidence, full of meaning that helps us realign the deeper truth of experience with the stories we tell about who we are and how we live. Drawing from her seven-year experience as a technician at Philadelphia’s Independence National Historical Park Archeology Laboratory, novelist and essayist Elizabeth Mosier demonstrates how an archaeological approach can bring fresh insight to the writer’s craft.
