ANT 395-02 - Advanced Special Topic: Approaches to Collective Memory

4 credits (Spring)
This course addresses forms of collective memory from theoretical and ethnographic perspectives. It locates memory in the social world, in the relevance of the past for the present, and in on-going struggles to represent and commemorate meaningful histories. It begins by addressing foundational theories. It builds upon them to consider: the relationship between nationalism and memory, the limits and possibilities of representing genocide, the on-going contestation of public memories, and embodied performances of memory.

Prerequisite: ANT 280 .
Instructor: French
