Event Description

The Justice of Memory: Evaluating monuments in a changing culture

A Pennoni Panel collaboration with the Rosenbach


Statues, buildings, commemorative plaques, and literature help define our identities, acknowledge our history, and articulate our progress. They highlight who and what we believe to be important. But certain events or cultural shifts can make us question how we want to both remember and honor the past. Conflicts over the legacies of Confederate statues led to their removal in several cities, inspired protests over controversial figures and memorials, and have encouraged the nation to question the functions and problems with memorialization. How do we handle hindsight? Does removing markers of the past invite us to ignore the more controversial actions and people within our history? To what extent do these physical objects accentuate and perpetuate the traumas of the past? This panel discussion and Q&A offers an opportunity to discuss how we acknowledge our past, address our present, and prepare for our future.
