Rockford Alumni Club Dine and Discuss: The Building and Rebuilding of the Notre Dame Cathedral
Wednesday, April 15
One year after the tragic fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, learn more about the challenges of reconstruction. Our panel of speakers will discuss how the cathedral’s original construction, centrality to French identity, and international recognition have affected the worldwide response.
Speakers will answer these questions: How did the cathedral gain its place in the public imagination? Will grand promises to rebuild the cathedral, made immediately after the fire, be fulfilled?
- Valerie Garver, Ph.D.; Chair and professor, Department of History.
