The CHS is excited to host an Encounters program on monuments presented by the Democracy and Dialogues Initiative at UCONN. Encounters is dedicated to fostering unexpected conversations around difficult issues. Participants dive into a subject and through facilitated, small-group dialogues followed by a “question and answer”-style conversation with expert panelists are encouraged to respond to the trying issues of today. Readings are provided beforehand to better encourage informed and informal dialogue within conversations.
Tonight’s program will focus on the role monuments play in our community. We will examine three monuments from three different centuries to learn more about how America responded to each monument when it was conceived and how we respond to them today. The monuments we will examine are the Washington Monument in (dedicated 1885), the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (dedicated 1982) and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice (opened 2018). The panelists include endawnis Spears (Diné/ Ojibwe/ Chickasaw/ Choctaw), Manisha Sinha, Ph.D., and Dana Miranda, Ph.D.
