Nigel Young will discuss his new book, "Making Modern Memory: Peace and War in an age of Remembering," a challenging post-national interpretation of 20th century cultural history up to the present. In his presentation Young will elaborate on the emergence of a Modern Memory, discussing in both a historical and sociological context. Nigel Young asks what is Modern Memory - how has it been constructed? And by whom? This groundbreaking presentation shows how a new way of remembering has been made in the face of modern war and genocide and now faces the crisis posed by populist nationalism and global tensions.
Event will take place in the Ridenour Room of the Dauch College of Business at Ashland University at 7pm on October 23rd. All are welcome; no registration necessary.
