Sunday, June 28, 2 pm – “Searching for Home While Traveling Heavy”

SPEAKER: Dr. Ruth Behar, Victor Haim Perera Collegiate Professor of Anthropology, University of Michigan.

Behar calls herself an anthropologist who specializes in homesickness. Repeatedly returning to her homeland of Cuba, unwilling to utter her last goodbye, she is obsessed by the question of why we leave home to find home. For those of us who travel heavy with our own baggage, Behar is an indispensable guide, full of grace and hope, in the perpetual search for connection that defines our humanity.”
