POSTPONED: Who Counts? How Lives are Remembered and Erased in Public Discourse
Important Announcement: The "Who Counts" Truth Project event is being postponed until the fall! Thank you to those who were interested in coming. Please stay tuned as we continue to plan important events and panel discussions like this for the fall.
What counts as public memory is mediated through countless public discussions, historical accounting, and institutional practice in consequential ways. How does the “truth” regarding the everyday experiences of life and death of countless members of vulnerable groups get constructed in the symbolic, historical, and institutional record of our society? As part of the discussion and lecture series The Truth Project, the Humanities Institute invites you to join us for this panel discussion, as we wrestle with the ways that lives are counted or forgotten in public discourse.
