On Pens and (S)words
Musagetes Program Coordinator Danica Evering spoke at TEDxGuelphU last November. This is a talk about stories, about pens and swords, and the people and communities who wield them. About the power they can have for change, as well as needing to be cautious about the stories we’re telling, and re-telling. Even as we discover new techniques and gain new knowledge in science, art, design, and technology, we are re-samplers of culture, building hybrid identities by telling old, old stories in new configurations. And it is in each new telling that they acquire power.
