‘Perspectives’ Display in Zoe's!

Tue hours: 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

 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.
