Courses: Defacement and Commemoration: Monuments and The Nation (ANTHH340B01)

Spring 2014

Monuments and memorials have been part and parcel of national self-fashioning and history. However, the stories they narrate are never complete or exhaustive. This course will examine how monuments such as war memorials create selective histories, effacing the past and producing narratives that serve a variety of needs.
