Rutgers Class of 1970 presents Prof. Susan Neiman
Please note that all of our events are cancelled for the remainder of the spring semester. We look forward to seeing you in the fall.
"Monuments, Memory, and Morals"
Abstract: What is at issue in the current debate over Confederate and other monuments? Is it heritage, hate, or something else entirely? What does it mean to examine our own history, and can Americans learn
from other countries in doing so? I will argue that Germany's attempts to face up to its Nazi past can be useful in American attempts to deal with our own record of slavery and genocide.
[The fall date is to be determined]
