MCC-UE 1413 - Cultural Memory

This course examines how cultural memory is enacted through visual culture in a comparative global context.  It looks at the rise of a memory culture over the last few decades, in particular in the United States, Europe and Latin America, and how this engagement with memory demonstrates how the politics of memory can reveal aspects of nationalism and national identity, ethnic conflict and strife, the legacies of state terrorism, and the deployment of memory as a means for further continued conflict.
