As James Baldwin wrote, “I am what time, circumstance, history, have made of me, certainly, but I am, also, much more than that. So are we all.” In this single session, you will begin laying the foundation of your family story — origins, questions, and artifacts — so that you may continue building your project with focus and intention. As you start organizing what you already know about your family history, you will begin to discover what you want to find out. Come prepared to read, write, discuss, and embrace the importance of your family story!
Agnotology is the study of ignorance, how it is produced and maintained, what is lost and forgotten, and most importantly, why. What drops—or is dropped—from the historical record? What has gone missing, and whose agenda do those gaps and holes serve? You could say that agnotology is the study of what isn’t.Foreward to John Okada’s No No Boy, Ruth Ozeki 2014
