Topic: JAPAS Volume 10 Panel Discussion on “Cultural Moorings and Policy Considerations”


> Ronald Jantz, Rutgers Universities Libraries > Krista Evans, Missouri State University

When: Friday, January 27, 2023, 12 to 1 PM Eastern Time

Where: Via Zoom or teleconference

Description: This event will feature a panel of authors from the spring issue of JAPAS. The works described in this issue discuss cultural dynamics of plain people but from different perspectives. Ron Jantz analyzed how and why Holdeman Mennonites have shifted their theological thinking and religious practices over a generation. Krista Evans examined the intersection of Amish culture and land use planning practice. Trudy Metzger identified specific latent cultural dynamics that could create increased vulnerabilities or silencing of survivors of sexual abuse. Beth Graybill explored how qualitative methodological techniques can inform ethnographic research with gender-focused mini-studies addressing patriarchy, women’s businesses, and COVID-19.
