The Kenan Institute for Ethics and Duke’s Department of Art, Art History and Visual Studies will host a community-centered conversation on the questions of how we commemorate history in the public space, how we memorialize individuals, ideologies and communities, and how we respond to our past, when our perspective changes.
The program, “Object Lessons: Do Public Monuments Have a Future?” will take place at 7:00 pm on April 27, 2018 in Durham’s Chesterfield Building.
Our distinguished panel will be moderated by Durham-based journalist Lisa Sorg:
- Fitzhugh Brundage — University of North Carolina, History
- Erika Doss — University of Notre Dame, American Studies
- Julian Maxwell Hayter — University of Richmond, Leadership Studies
- Pedro Lasch — Duke University, Art, Art History and Visual Studies
The program is open to the public and free of charge to attend. A reception will follow in the Chesterfield’s atrium.
The Chesterfield is located at 701 West Main Street, in Durham’s Brightleaf District. Free parking is available on-site.
