Unexpected Lessons from the Heartland: Conversations with Rural Women

Event Type: Adult Program
Date: 10/5/2014

Description:
 After completing an audio documentary workshop at Duke University, long-time Oak Park psychologist Jane Samuelson conducted oral histories of older women in rural Champaign County, Illinois. Samuelson heard stories of a way of life that has virtually disappeared. These women were first-hand witnesses to the transition from the family farm to mechanized agriculture, and then to agribusiness.
