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 craycraft.31@osu.edu if you cannot access the chapter. The discussion group is open to any and all who are interested in place!

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.
