The Place Studies Discussion Group will be gathering for our first event of the new semester on Wednesday, March 1st from 12:30pm-2:00pm for a discussion of Rebecca Ginsburg's book At Home with Apartheid. We'll specifically be focusing on chapter five, entitled "House Rules," but taking a peak at the introduction beforehand might be useful, as well! The chapter and entire ebook can be accessed on Project MUSE through OSU's library system. Please email Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org if you cannot access the chapter. The discussion group is open to any and all who are interested in place!
Place Studies Discussion Group: At Home with Apartheid

218 Ohio Stadium, 1961 Tuttle Park Pl, Columbus, OH 43210
Rebecca Ginsburg is an architectural historian, but her study is folklore-friendly and draws heavily on oral history. Her book was the 2011 recipient of the Abbott Lowell Cummings award (from the Vernacular Architecture Forum), and is a compelling study of the social life of buildings. The entire text is available online (through MUSE), as are a few useful reviews.
