Our work is not unprecedented. Many others at Duke University, at other universities, and outside the university are also engaging critically with their memorials. We have drawn upon the work of other universities for inspiration, and have studied cases across the nation as well as internationally, to understand the effects that memorialization has on people. We hope that this website may serve as a tool to organize the efforts of Duke students from past generations as well as those currently, who strive to commemorate histories that have been institutionally forgotten. Furthermore, we contribute our research and findings for the benefit of public education.
