Shawn Sobers
Professor of Cultural Interdisciplinary Practice


In this short auto-ethnographic essay, Sobers uses material culture as a doorway into a deeply personal reflection. Focusing on a pair of candles given to him by his late brother, the chapter leads the reader through the complexity of family dynamics, while also serving as a fitting tribute.
