Historical Memory in the United States

History 332

Usual Description

This seminar examines the ways American history is presented in monuments, films, museums, theme parks, products, and commemorations. We look at how representations of the past influence the construction of identity and shape political arguments about contemporary issues. Through study of diverse topics from the Alamo to civil rights memorials, students analyze how public representations of the past can become contested sites of political and racial struggle.
