2/11/2022 Academic Affairs Weekly Student Update
Greetings Cambridge College Students:
As the Spring 2022 term progresses, please know that our staff is available in the academic and administrative areas to help you succeed in your academic career at Cambridge College. Please reach out for assistance.
I am pleased to share with you the following activities.
Toppled Monuments Archive Presentation
The Toppled Monuments Archive (TMA) is an artist and activist-run digital archive of toppled colonialist, imperialist, racist, and sexist monuments: monuments that are pushed into lakes, set on fire, pulled down by rope, and rolled down the street by the people. Formed in 2020, TMA is a radical international collective that has come together to create the most comprehensive, accessible, open-source online platform of recorded toppled monuments. In this presentation, TMA Founder Jillian McManemin will discuss TMA's present/future projects to reorient historic preservation and meaning-making.
§ Wednesday, February 23rd from 6:15-7:00 PM ET via Zoom -
