Recognizing an Imperfect Past: History, Memory and the American Public

A two-week institute for twenty-five college and university faculty to study how events in United States history are publicly memorialized, remembered, and recognized.

This two-week program will engage scholars—college and university professors—in an exploration of how we as a country recognize, remember, and memorialize controversial people and events in the American past as viewed with a presentist lens, and what role scholars can play in the classroom and the public arena in shaping and leading this national discussion going forward.
