Sculpting History: New Thinking on Monuments and M

Sculpting History: New Thinking on Monuments and M


This research afternoon is designed to platform new thinking around monuments and memorialisation from PGR and ECR research community based in the UK.

Purposefully conceived of without period and thematic boundaries, eight speakers will present short papers covering an array of topics, including ancient battlefield monuments, ideological constructions of gender and colonialism in St Paul's Cathedral and Westminster Abbey, poetic memorialisations of the Holocaust, the memorialisation of slavery through contemporary art, and how museums represent postcolonial heritages.

The purpose of the event is to provide an open, welcoming environment where speakers and attendees can make connections, and hear new research that evidences the rich interdisciplinary potential of monuments.
