Public Memory and Public Monuments: Where Do They Stand in 2018?
Monday, November 11
8PM
Description
History, memory and identity, three of the most powerful elements influencing our regard for monuments and their meaning to us individually and as a community. Over time and in different contexts, those meanings can shift from honored to commonplace to hotly debated topic of public debate about who and how to honor in public spaces. Over the past year, conflicts have exploded over the removal of monuments to the Confederacy, both officially and through acts of resistance. Disagreement has also erupted over the recent official campaign by New York City to remove “Symbols of Hate.” This panel of specialists joins the debate about memorializing the past and the future.
