Jessica Streit will begin the evening presentation with medieval Le Puy-en-Velay, a city that serves as the starting point for one of the four major routes to Santiago de Compostela. Her talk will feature two of the city’s 12th-century pilgrimage monuments, showing how they engender feelings of arrival and a desire to keep moving for their audience of pilgrims. Kathleen Jenkins will then bring us to the 21st century. Drawing from her recent ethnography, Walking the Way Together: How Families Connect on the Camino de Santiago, Kathleen will present stories of families investing in pilgrimage as a practice for strengthening kin relationships and becoming a part of each other’s emotional and spiritual understandings.
