MARIETTA - Please join the Marietta History Center for its On Doing History program which introduces our guests to a variety of ways people “do” history. Those who work in the fields of history include cemetery preservationists, genealogists, archaeologists, documentarians, archivists, curators, oral historians, historic preservationists, and just plain old historians, among others! This series provides an opportunity to learn from and ask questions of the experts in this field. Guests will leave with expert advice on how to apply this field to their own lives.
Our October 1st On Doing History: Architecture program will feature, Architectural Historian, Marietta Monaghan, PhD., who is a Senior Lecturer at Kennesaw State University where she has taught both studio and lecture classes since 2005. She is also Coordinator of the Architecture/ Cultures sequence for the College of Architecture and Construction Management. Recently, Dr. Monaghan also coordinated the Construction history Society of America 7th Biennial conference at the Marietta Campus of KSU. Her primary interests are the architectural and social histories of working- class neighborhoods and communities constructed as worker housing by large infrastructure, manufacturing, and mining companies especially those working in the early 20th century outside of large cities.
