Memory Quilts in Community Spaces
Tuesday, November 7, 2023
As a 2022-2023 Cauthen Fellow for the Alabama Folklife Association, Dr. Bond interviewed quilters from across the state for an in depth study of memory quilts. Sometimes referred to as bereavement quilts, these artifacts occupy a unique place within the broader quilting tradition. In this program, Dr. Zanice Bond will present and interpret two memory quilts, both from her perspective as an English professor and her experience as a licensed funeral director and embalmer.
