Maria DiBenigno, Mellon Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Highland: “Reinterpreting/Reorienting James Monroe’s Highland”

At James Monroe’s Highland, located in Charlottesville, ongoing research reveals interconnected community histories and recent discoveries about the site's buildings. As part of William & Mary since 1974, Highland also serves as a learning campus for W&M students and community members from Williamsburg, Charlottesville, and beyond. In this talk, Maria DiBenigno PhD ’20, Mellon Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Highland, will highlight ongoing research there, reflecting on the ways museums such as Highland shape present-day understandings of the past through a dialogue between museums and visitors. 

The Emerging Scholars Series is offered in partnership with the Williamsburg Regional Library. Free & open to the public.
