THIS EVENT HAS PASSED
Public Scholars Project
Memorials Go Up, Memorials Come Down
May 15, 2019 at 7:30 PM | Atlantic Highlands, NJ | Strauss Mansion
The events in Charlottesville during the summer of 2017 have prompted even more consideration about memorials and what they represent. When it comes to memorials, heritage and events are political and often reflected in the monuments that are erected. As ideologies change, groups become more or less powerful in privileging the commemorated, or as new information comes to light, new monuments are created and/or old ones are removed. In this session, the politics of and public response to memorials will be examined through numerous lens.
