The Past Under Erasure: History, Memory, and the Contemporary (Lecture)
September 21, 2012 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Prof. Geoff Eley will explore some particularities of history writing in the present in his lecture, “The Past Under Erasure: History, Memory, and the Contemporary.”Thematics include the meanings of the contemporary interest in memory, the different ways in which ideas about and images of the past circulate through the mass-mediated public sphere, the complexities of publicness and the public sphere, and the shifting boundaries between popular ideas of the past and changes in the discipline of history.
