Event description
BARN RAISINGS, THRESHING AND QUILTING BEES: The Stories Farm Diaries Tell with Guest Speaker Catharine Wilson, University of Guelph

About this event

Catharine Wilson shares her forthcoming book, Bee-ing Neighbours, about barn raisings and quilting bees in Ontario, 1830-1960. Employing farm diaries, she takes the audience into families’ daily lives, the intricacies of the labour exchange, their workways, feasts, and hospitality to uncover the subtle social politics of mutual dependency, the expectations neighbours had of each other, their thinking, relationships, and ways of managing conflict and crisis.
