Dr. James Young @ Kellog Centers Lincoln Room

In this illustrated lecture, Dr. James E. Young will trace what he calls an “arc of memorial vernacular” from the “Memorial to the Deportees” in Paris, to Maya Lin’s design for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, to German counter-monuments and the Berlin Denkmal, to Michael Arad’s design for the 9/11 Memorial in New York City. Drawing on his experience as juror on both the Denkmal and 9/11 Memorial design competitions, he will reflect on how they came to be and what they may portend for future national memorials in America, Europe, and Israel.

Take Back the Night @ Beaumont Tower
Apr 10 all-day
Take Back the Night @ Beaumont Tower | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Take Back the Night is an annual event dedicated to shedding a light on the prevalence of domestic and sexual violence, with the intent of transforming culture and breaking the silence around these forms of abuse, in the hopes of empowering more survivors to come forward. Such an event is especially relevant and necessary on a college campus recently ravaged by a sexual abuse scandal.

This event is a collaborative effort between members of MSU and the Greater Lansing area. Anyone can attend and the event is free.

This is an all-day event. More details on the activities of the day will be posted as the day of the event approaches. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, April 10th.
