For her "Making History Public" class last semester, Professor Dana Sajdi chose the theme of "historical monuments." Students used primary sources and other materials housed at the John J. Burns Library to research various topics and to curate this exhibition, which explores how built structures can be assigned different meanings and uses over time. There's an online component to the exhibit at http://daedala.org/monuments/.
