Prof. Andrea Smith is participating in a digital discussion (free to the public on Zoom) entitled “Columbus in the Crosshairs: Navigating Symbolism in Public Art” on July 15th from 5-7PM.  Professor Smith’s work explores social memory, placemaking, and identity, with a particular focus on transnational, immigrant, and racial and ethnic identities.

The “panel discussion examining the intersection of public art, history, and social justice” is part of the Lehigh Valley Engaged Humanities Consortium’s fantastic Digital Discussion Series. LVEHC is supported by a grant to Lafayette College from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. More information is available here:
