The Foreign Mission School
A Writing History Workshop with John Demos
Thursday, Feb. 24, 4.30pm
Join Writing History and Yale Early American Historians (YEAH) as we discuss a draft-chapter from John Demos’s current book project, a *microhistory* of the Foreign Mission School. This chapter is an account of John’s own experience during a recent visit to Hawaii, to explore the origins of a central character in the story. As such it raises questions of place, authorial presence, author-to-subject connections, and the like.
