For our collaborative work, some fellow Humesters and I decided to work on a video documenting the “bodies” of Davidson and the Humanities program.
Even past living bodies, it is important to us that the bodies of architecture and sculptures around campus are documented in our work as they also represent concepts of the body. Every person, structure, and system on this campus has a story and history to tell, whether it’s embedded deep inside or right on the surface.
For some of the buildings and spaces shown in the video, a great resource for some history is the digital tour “Disorienting and Reorienting Davidson College,” created by Davidson students to highlight the history of white supremacy here at Davidson College. You can access this tour by downloading the PocketSights app on your digital device and going to the Davidson location. (I highly recommend the tour. In my opinion, it should be required for all students.)
