The Carpenter Museum is pleased to announce our 2018 programs commemorating the 375th anniversary of Rehoboth’s founding in 1643. These programs are supported in part by a grant from the Rehoboth Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

 

 



SEPTEMBER

OUR BELOVED KIN: A NEW HISTORY OF KING PHILIP’S WAR
Thursday, September 27, 6PM
This event is at capacity.

Lisa Brooks, Associate Professor of English and American Studies at Amherst College, will give a talk on her recently published book, Our Beloved Kin: A New History of King Philip’s War (Yale University Press, 2018). Our Beloved Kin recovers a complex picture of war, captivity, and Native resistance during the “First Indian War” (later named King Philip’s War) by relaying the stories of Weetamoo, a female Wampanoag leader, and James Printer, a Nipmuc scholar, whose stories converge in the captivity of Mary Rowlandson. This event is at capacity.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Rehoboth Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
