"In the Beginning . . ." by Christine Baron for The Public Humanist

When I was in the first grade, the nuns at school told me that God had no beginning; He just always existed. That made no sense to me. Everything has at least a beginning. I was fairly certain, in my self-assured 7-year old mind, that the nuns had just not looked hard enough. I was convinced, that if you just looked back far enough…See More

What is your interest in the Mass. Studies Network?
As an MFH program officer I meet many Massachusetts history practitioners and am aware of many history based projects and organizations in the state. This network seems a promising way to deepen those connections and learn about inspiring program models that effectively engage communities.
About Me:
I have been a member of the staff at the Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities for nearly ten years. Besides counseling grant applicants and managing the quarterly grant cycles, I edit and contribute to MFH's blog, hosted on the Valley Advocate website, "The Public Humanist." (Want to write for it? Let me know!) I am also an unknown, aspiring visual artist (focused mostly on painting and puppet making), joining thousands in Northampton alone, not to mention the mother of a most excellent three-year-old boy, which does even less to distinguish me while it is also my most worthy work in life. My favorite pastime is doing nothing, followed perhaps by reading local-politics blogs and watching Lost. Way back in the day, when I was a graduate student of literature at the University of New Hampshire, I was the Managing Editor of the National Women's Studies Association Journal. This experience helped me understand that almost everything in life can be analyzed in terms of gender and that many things besides books are subject to deconstruction. I have recently taken up freelance writing about the subject of intentional communities, an interest inspired by reading a grant proposal!
