Conversation Project: From the Desert to the Sea

Geography and Identity in Oregon

July 27, 2019 | 2 p.m. | The Dalles-Wasco County Library

722 Court St., The Dalles OR 97058

What are people really asking when they ask, “Where do you live?” In Oregon, philosophical and political divides have deep connections to geographic location. This conversation, led by author Kristy Athens, will explore the assumptions Oregonians have historically made about each other based on both literal and figurative place—including east versus west and urban versus rural—as well as the potential benefits and harms of conflating where you are (or have been) with who you are.
