The Connection between Human Rights, Memory and How Societies Create Memorials


This seminar introduces students to multiple approaches to how to create memory, with a focus on building a proposal for Duke to expand the sites where stories are told. We are particularly interested in how to tell difficult stories of slavery, segregation and inequality through new sites and interpretive plans. Students will create a Duke memory map and develop a Story Bank. The class is in part funded by Bass Connections and is affiliated with the Story Lab.
