Join Dr. Kate Yanina DeConinck, from the Department of Theology and Religious Studies, as she shares insights from her ethnographic fieldwork at sites of 9/11 remembrance in New York City. This presentation will highlight the varied significances of memorialization for survivors, first responders, family members who lost loved ones, and other individuals who were touched by loss in 2001. This material raises a number of questions about remembrance and meaning-making in the wake of contemporary mass tragedies.

Bridges Academy is a continuing education program for those 55 and older. Join us for exciting lectures given by USD’s leading faculty. All lectures are held mid-week on the picturesque USD campus. While the lecture series is free to all participants, the Office of Planned Giving encourages the growth of the Bridges Endowed Scholarship fund, which awards merit-based scholarships to undergraduate students. We look forward to seeing you on campus!
