Recognizing Painful Legacies through Memorial Construction
Speakers: Julian Bonder, Deborah Martin (Geography), and Kristen Wilson (Art History)
The question of how communities address painful legacies through memorial construction is the starting point for a discussion between architect Julian Bonder and Clark Professors Deborah Martin and Kristina Wilson. Bonder’s well-known Memorial to the Abolition of Slavery in Nantes, France, a port from which hundreds of Atlantic slave-trading expeditions set forth, will serve as the cornerstone. The trio will also look at Bonder’s Holocaust-related work and other memorials to mass atrocity.
