About the lecture: Much has been written about substance use disorder and recovery in our area, but local voices rarely get heard in the national discourse. Instead of speaking about or on behalf of others, Movable: Narratives of Recovery and Place enables grassroots voices from the region to reach a larger audience and connect to each other. Through writing workshops, community mapping sessions, and an online submission portal, Movable staff members—which include Marshall undergrads, grad students, and faculty–collect and publish written narratives, visual art, audio interviews, and video testimonies focused on the importance of place in stories of recovery. The project’s goal is not only to counter the often negative coverage of the region but to foster and preserve a community approach to recovery and its intersections with Appalachian identity.
