PCEA Conference - Narratives of Travel & Navigation: English by Water, Air, Land, and Imagination

updated: 
Wednesday, December 8, 2010 - 1:01pm

Its waters were vital to winning wars and providing a point of arrival for immigrants. Erie's remote location and close proximity to the Canadian border also offered a conduit for those escaping slavery. Narratives of travel have long served to document the course of peoples' physical and imaginative movements. They have recorded minute details of lived experience as well as aspirations for the future and fears of the unknown, creating histories of time and place, directing individual lives, and shaping cultural realities.
