Bennington Historical Society to Focus on Hall Farm
The Bennington Historical Society invites the public to the Park-McCullough House at 1 Park Street in North Bennington for a free program hosted by Angus McCullough in conjunction with the exhibition ‘Connected Through The Land,’ which focuses on the Hall Farm. The program will begin at 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 18. Jordana Dym, director of the John B. Moore Documentary Studies Program at Skidmore College, and Eileen Scully, professor of History at Bennington College, will offer insights into their approaches to historical representation. Dym will speak about her program, MDOCS, an interdisciplinary center presenting the stories of the human experience in documentary media and technologies – old and new; visual, oral and written; analog and digital. Scull will discuss the geographically-specific practice of history generated for wide audiences through collaborations with communities, stakeholders and professional academics.
