Motivating Monuments: Defining Collective Identities in Public Spaces

Graduate Student Symposium

November 2-3, 2018

Motivating Monuments, a Pitt Graduate Symposium, is a two-day event dedicated to examining the agency of monuments as living sites of cultural memory and identity. Speakers will address these issues through a variety of historical contexts, examining how relationships between audiences and monuments are defined or redefined as regimes change, colonies falter, or public attitudes shift. Jacqueline Jung will serve as the symposium's keynote speaker.
