Lecture by Nina McConigley RI '20

Free and open to the public.

During her time at the Radcliffe Institute, Nina McConigley is writing and researching a novel, “The Call of Migratory Things.” This novel considers how race, immigration, colonialism, post-frontier America, motherhood and fertility, and place intersect. The landscape of the American West is the framework of this different kind of pioneer narrative.
