ISP 264 Remembering & Forgetting in Public & Private

3 hours 

This course examines the ways in which painful or difficult histories in the U.S. have been represented in national discourse and public memorials; how and why such histories have sometimes been erased, forgotten or silenced; and the means by which these histories may then be recalled to public memory. The course also explores the social and cultural effects of both forgetting and remembering.
