John A’s Severed Head and the Politics of Public Memory: A free online lecture by Dr. Micheal DeMoor who teaches in the Politics, History, and Economics Program at The King’s University via zoom, Monday, Oct. 26, 6:00 – 7:30 pm from the King’s University, Edmonton. Around the world, statues have been pulled down or vandalized in protests against the way that these monuments tell the story of our shared history. Similar controversies have surrounded movements to re-name streets, schools, and neighbourhoods. These events and the public responses to them have generally generated more heat than light, but they do clearly show a need to think deeply about how the way we tell our histories shapes our identities, our institutions, and even our public policy. This lecture will reflect on the challenges of “public memory”, and will suggest a way of deciding how we should tell our stories in public spaces that go beyond a cycle of provocation and counter-provocation. For registration: Public Lectures at the King’s University
