1492 Retold: A Bicultural Reexamination of Columbus’s Epic Voyage
Andrew Rowen is the author of Encounters Unforeseen: 1492 Retold, which dramatizes the history of Columbus’s epic voyage and first encounters with Native Americans from a bicultural perspective, presenting Native American beliefs, thoughts, and actions side by side with those of Columbus and other Europeans, all closely based on primary sources and anthropological studies.

Rowen’s talk explores how and why the encounters in 1492 and 1493 enfolded as they did from both peoples’ perspectives.
