Community Conversations: Memory, History, and Community
Using our conversation program format in a new, online way, we invite you to speak with people who might never cross your path but who are struggling with the same anxieties and preserving the same hopes as you.
HNY is continuing its Online Community Conversations series with a discussion on “Memory, History, and Community.” Who, in a democracy, gets to decide how we remember the past? What happens when one group’s memories lie in tension with those of another? What role does memorialization play in our society?
To complement this online conversation, we have curated a brief selection of readings that examine the complex interconnections between memory, history, and memorialization. That said,our online conversation, like all of HNY’s Community Conversations, will use a single brief text to spark the conversation. This text will be provided after registration. Each of these selections is available online, free of charge.
