Through a simple yet effective theater presentation called Love Stories, scholars Maura McIntyre and Andrea Cole, shared the narratives of caregivers to Alzheimer’s patients.
In a few minutes I go to a session that looks at narrative in film. Presentation titles include: Traumatic distortions of body and time: Christopher Nolan’s Memento, Personal and historical trauma in The Shining, and Cameras, scalpels and speculums: Popular film and the tragicomedy of pelvic exams.
I so appreciate when scholars take the time and creative energy to present their findings in non-traditional means. How better to reach everyday folks who will be benefit from hearing the work.
Although I didn’t ask Marvin to pray a special prayer of protection for my trip (see post below), I have had lovely weather and even got to take a nice hike today over looking the Bay of Fundy (even passed a Camp Fundy–lol) Photos below. They have a the highest tides in the world here. Oh, and Hertz was all out of compact cars, so they say, “We are sorry but do you mind if we give you a free upgrade for a Ford Mustang.” Sweet Ride!
