    This panel’s goals are to explore the uses and understandings of art, monuments, and memorials in the public space. Panelists will discuss the many histories represented in public squares, parks, courthouses, and museums. The questions include both how these material projects are understood by producers of the objects and by those who observe them, including those who see themselves represented (or not) in the built landscape. What claims and whose claims to the public space are on display? When, where, and how does the violence of history get inscribed or erased? And today, what are the options to express the concerns and to question, evaluate, reframe, and alter these various depictions so as to provide accountings of the histories while acknowledging the roles played by domination, discrimination, and reconstruction?

    A virtual business meeting was held prior to the Annual Meeting.
