Schreyer Honors College (SHC)at Penn State

DHFP Campus Memorial Walk

  • Date 10/28/18
  • Time 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM
  • Location Meet at Atherton Hall
Penn State is our home, and we all learn our way around, but how many of us pay attention to the many small and large, public and private, straightforward and subtle monuments and memorials around campus? In a meandering walk of between one and one and one half hours around PSU, we will consider the role that these sites play in our experience of the urban environment. What is their purpose? How do they influence us? Our discussion will combine insights from Urban Studies, Public History, and Memory Studies among other fields, with our own lived experience of the memorial landscape of PSU. We will then stop at Webster’s cafe downtown to continue our discussion over refreshments. Scholars will meet Professor Adler in the courtyard behind Atherton Hall (facing the White Building)

Cost: Free
