What Makes Intentional Communities Work

Thursday, September 26 › 7-8 p.m.

Fulton, William Woods University, Kemper Arts Center, Room 112

In Jessica Bruder's "Nomadland," the itinerant workers she interviews cluster for yearly get-togethers that last longer and longer as they begin to settle into ad hoc, impromptu intentional communities. Dr. Matt Dube will explore how that community is similar to other collective or cooperative communities in America both historically and in the present day. What can we learn from these communities about how people come together or splinter apart when they try to live together according to shared values? Dr. Dube is a professor of English and director of online education at William Woods University.
