Week 5: This week

Hello, Scholars!

I hope your week is off to a good start. First, if you haven’t already, please complete your entries for the Weinstein Hall inventory that we began in class on Thursday. This will be an important trial run for us to work out any issues with the spreadsheets. Please use the link I provided last week to the Google spreadsheet.

For tomorrow’s class (9/25), please make sure you’ve read/watched the following:

Murphy, Michael. “Architecture That’s Built to Heal.” February 2016. [Approx. 16 mins]

Svokos, Alexandra. “Why Are College Buildings Still Named After White Supremacists?” Huffington Post. (September 8, 2015).

Moore, Dasia. “When Does Renaming a Building Make Sense?” The Nation. (February 17, 2017).

Focus: Confronting History on CampusThe Chronicle of Higher Education, 2016, 12-27.

For Thursday (9/27), you will need to read the Finnegan and Carter articles. (see the Readings tab)

Remember: no written assignments are due this week.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions.

I’ll see you tomorrow!
