The Speaker Bureau provides Washington communities with an impressive roster of historians, musicians, actors, and lecturers who bring history and the arts alive through performance and lecture.
March 20th 1:45 “Contours of Public Memory”
What do we collectively remember and what do we collectively forget?
How do we choose what to collectively remember, collectively forget or even destruct?
These are questions posed by Prof. David Schultz as he explores how the body of “Public Memory” relates to policies and beliefs we live by today. How does myth, stories handed down, media coverage (or not), legends fit into this picture.
Free and open to all. Doors open at !:30pm Coffee pot on.
