‘Perspectives’ Display in Zoe's!

  • All ProQuest products will be unavailable from 7:00 pm to midnight on 2/28/15 due to scheduled maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

 The Fall 2011 ‘Perspectives’ Display is devoted to examining the multiple narratives around Columbus Day and Thanksgiving Day.  Traditionally very Western-centric holidays, these events celebrate European culture in the United States.  However, contemporary critics have offered a new perspective on these events:  that Columbus Day and Thanksgiving Day only offers one paradigm of European arrival in North America.

The Fall 2011 Display hopes to offer a thorough examination of the issues around these holidays.  Any questions?  Contact Rebecca Marrall at rebecca.marrall@wwu.edu.
