Mapping Our Memories – ROEN

0 Comment

In this workshop we’ll tap into past memories by first drawing a rough map identifying the places and spaces that represented the focus of our world—and the people and activities in it—at a particular phase of life. What spaces were important at 10? 20? 40? Then we’ll write about a memory associated with a particular mapped place/space/experience.

Duane Roen has been tracing his roots since his teenage years, building a database with more than 32,000 ancestors. He and his wife, Maureen Roen, have also been recording their family history since 1978 by writing more than 19,000 daily journal entries on their children and other family members. Combining his professional and personal interests, Duane worked with colleagues to establish courses on writing and recording family history at Arizona State University. He also is founding coordinator of the Project for Writing and Recording Family History in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at ASU.
