Lecture: Elizabeth Catte
In her talk entitled “Seeing Appalachia,” writer and public historian Elizabeth Catte will take a critical look at representations of the region in contemporary writing, photography and reporting, underscoring how the visual archive of Appalachia often renders a diverse and complicated place into a series of problems that threaten the nation's progress. Catte is author of What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia, and is currently co-editing 55 Strong: Inside the West Virginia Teachers’ Strike.
