Architectural History student club to host a panel discussion “Rethinking Commemoration”

February 19, 2020

The James Oglethorpe Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians, SCAD’s Architectural History student club, has organized a public panel entitled “Rethinking Commemoration,” taking place Saturday, February 22, 2:00-3:00 p.m. at the SCAD Museum of Art Auditorium.  Spearheaded by Clara Miller (BFA candidate) and club vice-president, the event addresses the lack of diversity in the Savannah’s revered and controversial commemorative landscape. Historic preservation and architectural history panelists — Thomas Gensheimer, Ph.D., SCAD and City of Savannah’s Historic Sites and Monuments Commission; Vaughnette Goode-Walker, Footprints of Savannah; Lilith Logan, Owens-Thomas House and Slave Quarters; and Chassidy Malloy, Historic Savannah Foundation — discuss how public support and the private reinterpretation of history are impacting public remembrance and reframing historical narratives in Savannah.
