Making History: Museums, Monuments, and Cultural HeritageCourse Cancelled

Tiffany Cherelle Cain

Back to "Spring 2020" courses

This course contends with how shared histories are collectively made and remade in contemporary society. We will interrogate the meaning of history, memory, heritage, and “the past.” What is at stake in how we represent the past? What do we mean when we make a claim on history as “ours”? What role do museums, monuments, and memorials play in the formation and maintenance of collective identities? Can practices like public history and archaeology promote collective healing?
