She will share a timeline of known events and people in Oberlin’s housing history and then invite interested attendees to talk about these or other events and how they have laid a framework for people’s experiences today. Fortin, from the Adirondacks area of New York, is a second-year Comparative American Studies major at Oberlin College.
