Canton author and renowned expert on the Amish, Dr. Karen Johnson-Weiner, draws on her 35 years of fieldwork in Amish communities and her correspondence with Amish women to consider how religiously defined roles of Amish women have changed - in particular, looking at women’s lives and activities at different ages and in different communities.
We have invited Dr. Johnson-Weiner to join us for a discussion about the lives of Amish women. There will be a brief introduction, followed by an audience-led Q&A. If you would like to read The Lives of Amish Women before this event, you can purchase it here. You are also welcome to come with whatever questions you have without reading the book in advance.
