Syracuse Symposium celebrates Syracuse University’s Sesquicentennial week with a return by alumna Lauret Savoy (Ph.D. ’91), a renowned writer of both Native American and African American descent. Savoy studies landscapes, the naming of landscapes, and the relation between culture and lands. Her recent book, TRACE, won the American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation and the ASLE Creative Writing Award. Savoy incorporates readings with her award-winning photography.
