The social lives of statues
Canada's National War Memorial, Confederation Sq.
In this tour we will walk from the National War Memorial down Elgin Street, ending at "Enclave": the Women's Monument in Minto Park. Along this stretch of Elgin Street we will visit many well-known and more obscure monuments—twelve in total. I will discuss the history of the monuments as well as moments in their lives: moments of protest, defacement, and the politics of annual monument rituals.
