"Monuments, Memory, and Morals"
Abstract: What is at issue in the current debate over Confederate and
other monuments? Is it heritage, hate, or something else entirely?
What does it mean to examine our own history, and can Americans learn
from other countries in doing so? I will argue that Germany's attempts
to face up to its Nazi past can be useful in American attempts to deal
with our own record of slavery and genocide.
