The Spirit of California Imprisoned: Summoning the Mission Inn

Presiding Officer: 
David Arnold, "University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point"

Although Kevin Starr deems Riverside “the center of the mission cult,” little scholarship has been devoted to the Mission Inn, which actress Lillian Gish proclaimed “the spirit of California imprisoned.” Our session illuminates the Mission Inn as a powerfully signifying space at the heart of California’s Mission Revival.
