The Curious Politics of Remembrance and Forgetting
Rhodes Hall - S203
Monday, February 24, 2014 · 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Open Lecture presented by Dr. Andrej Findor.
Dr. Findor will discuss the intellectual aspects of why certain historical events are collectively remembered and memorialized, while similar events are forgotten. He will bring in perspectives from the fields of psychology, economics, and sociology to explore why the genocidal murder of Roma gypsies during WWII has never been collectively memorialized and is largely forgotten by members of the public, politicians, and academics.
