JCA Signature Series: Monument(al) Crisis
People have the desire to commemorate the past, as we monumentalize specific historical figures and events. On this Columbus Day / Indigenous Peoples’ Day and in the ongoing movement of Black Lives Matter, this webinar invites two leading scholars to share their critical perspectives about these problematic Columbus statues and controversial confederate monuments across the nation. How should we, as individuals and as a community, re-engage this monumental crisis?
Our guest panelists are Sarah Beetham, Chair of Liberal Arts and Assistant Professor of Art History, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and Erika Doss, Professor of American Studies, University of Notre Dame; the evening’s presentation will be moderated by Peter Wang, Lecturer of Art History at Butler University.
The Jordan College of the Arts would like to thank Dr. Marianne Williams Tobias for her generous support of the Fall 2020 JCA Signature Series.
