Reinterpreting/Reorienting James Monroe’s Highland (WL)
September 28 @ 2:00 pmFree
At James Monroe’s Highland, located in Charlottesville, ongoing research reveals interconnected community histories and recent discoveries about the site’s buildings. As part of William & Mary since 1974, Highland also serves as a learning campus for W&M students and community members from Williamsburg, Charlottesville, and beyond. In this talk, Maria DiBenigno (W&M PhD ’20), Mellon Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Highland, will highlight ongoing research there, reflecting on the ways museums such as Highland shape present-day understandings of the past through a dialogue between museums and visitors.
The Emerging Scholars Series is a partnership between the Arts & Sciences Graduate Center at William & Mary and the Williamsburg Regional Library. The series features W&M graduate students and postdocs in talks hosted by the WRL intended to bring cutting-edge research to the local community.
Located in room 127 at the Stryker Center.
