Drawing of the Washington Monument.
With the “Hear, Here” series, we aim to facilitate conversations around new research in the humanities. Faculty fellows at the Institute for the Humanities will discuss a part of their current project in a short talk followed by a Q & A session. Today: "Monumental Revisions," with Anca Trandafirescu.

Across the world monuments are being torn down and dragged away as if they never existed. But what is lost when we no longer have to face who we once were? Considering ways to radically expand and complicate our monuments’ vocabularies through physical revision, this talk will present proposed design corrections to the Washington Monument. The talk will include a brief historical trace of the monument itself and drawings-in-progress of its imagined alterations.
