Designing Monuments to Keep Memories Alive: How Should We Memorialize Victims of Hate Crimes?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How should we pay tribute to those killed in acts of hateful violence? By examining tragedies and memorial efforts specific to Wyoming, like the Rock Springs Massacre of 1885 (28 Chinese miners killed) and Matthew Shepard’s murder over a century later, this session explores the aspirations and challenges of creating meaningful memorials.

I currently teach writing to engineering majors, and recently taught a first year seminar on activist art in America, from 1960 to the present. I'm interested in the architecture and design of memorials-- and the many choices we make, consciously or not, in our efforts to remember or forget.
