This week, Sean re-visits a conversation he had a couple years ago with Tonya Davidson, a sociologist for Carleton. They talked about why communities commission statues, how the public interact with them, and debate their value in encouraging historical thinking. They also walked through downtown Ottawa to look at some of the city’s monuments and talk about their place within the community.
