Kreider Lecture: “Amish Women’s Literacies”

Tuesday, Feb 18 8:00p
Bowers Writers House Elizabethtown, PA

Vi Dutcher, professor of rhetoric and composition and director of the writing program at Eastern Mennonite University, discusses the literacy practices of female members of a particular northeastern Ohio Amish community. Whether it be writing as a scribe for a newspaper column, making cards to send to shut-ins or handing down time-honored recipes to younger women, a northeastern Ohio Amish woman practices literacy that is both public and private and always sacred.
