Join Patricia Manos as she presents case studies of Soviet monument-destruction in former-Soviet Republics, as well as of Confederate monument destruction in the United States, while also presenting recent cases of monument-removal in New York. After going over some of the most significant arguments for and against monument-removal, as well as artistic alternatives to monument-removal, we will finish with open discussion.
We will be using Zoom to host this program, space is limited, and you will need either a computer with audio and webcam or a telephone in order to participate. We will be sending the log in information to participants Thursday, so keep an eye out for the email!
