This is a group project, a chapbook done by our class. We chose Traditional X as our class name.
From the Introduction:
Rather than a piece of polished prose, our students created a cultural artefact.
When I say ‘cultural artefact’, that may conjure images of bones gathering dust in a museum. That is not what this is. Tradition is not a fixed monolith of the past. Tradition is alive, shifting, conversation, stories. We are all inheritors and creators of traditions. This bundle of stories is a work in process. Welcome to our conversation. Welcome to Traditional X.
