NEH Enduring Questions Course on How Societies Remember

The development and teaching of a new undergraduate course on history and memory.

Who decides what societies remember. Who gives form and shape to what societies remember. Who writes the songs that become part of a cultural heritage and how are they then passed down. What is the meaning of monuments memorials and statues when they are first constructed and how does that meaning develop over time. What is the impact of historical landscapes onto historical memory. What is the relationship between personal memory and social memory. And where does national memory come in. When does a new event enter into a societys memory. And how does a past event once overlooked become incorporated into public memory. In this new undergraduate course How Do Societies Remember developed collaboratively by architectural history professor Eleni Bastea and history professor Melissa Bokovoy we will examine the above questions through the prisms of historical and literary sources as well as works of art architecture and music.
