Walk #1: The Dam Is Coming Down

We strolled down through town this morning to spend some time thinking about “word pools” with Bennet Fellow Peter Anderson. The dam is coming down in July, so this year’s L&L crew is uniquely positioned to think deeply about Exeter’s relationship to the river, is uniquely poised to bear witness to the last expression of this current state of affairs. Check out some of the student blogs to get a sense of how the morning played out.

Thank you, Peter, for your work with the students, for prompting us to think about “river words” and the many embedded metaphors that rivers suggest.
