Cultures of Healing in Practice and the Archive
Fri 11/17 2:30PM - 4:30PM


This symposium, workshop, and performance asks, how do we define healing? With student presentations and a performance manifesto by Chicana playwright and author Virginia Grise, we will open conversation about the relationship between healing practices from indigenous cultures across the Americas including Inuit, Navajo, and curanderismo traditions.

Virginia Grise’s recently published book Your Healing is Killing Me directly confronts the gap between modern and indigenous healing as well as between access. Grise is a recipient of the Yale Drama Award, Whiting Writers’ Award, and the Princess Grace Award in Theatre Directing.

This event will take place in the Latin American Lecture Room in the Hillman Library.
