Sites of Memory: A Symposium on Toni Morrison and the Archive
“Sites of Memory: A Symposium on Toni Morrison and the Archive” brings together scholars, artists, writers, and activists to celebrate, interrogate, and reflect upon the archive in relation to Toni Morrison’s writing, her teaching, and her public intellectual work. The event is part of a year of programming surrounding the Spring 2023 exhibition “Toni Morrison: Sites of Memory.” While Morrison’s literary output is well known, this symposium breaks new ground by inviting attendees to think with her archive, the Toni Morrison Papers, about less recognized aspects of her art: her composition practices, her unpublished writings, and her daily life as a teacher at Princeton.
