Recent events such as the Black Lives Matter movement have led to a national reckoning with how Americans memorialize the past. In particular, monuments to the Confederacy and American slaveholders have resulted in a collective re-evaluation of various memorial practices, and in many cases, removal of these monuments from the public landscape. Why now? What has sparked this moment of re-evaluation? What is at stake in these contests over public memory? Are there different ways to imagine memorial cultures that do not rely upon mythologized representations of the past? In this course, students will tackle these questions through a variety of genres, including written texts and documents, art/sculpture, photography, and film.
