AES 440: History and Memory: Race, Archives and Afterlives of War

SLN 10167 

M W 9:30 – 11:20 AM ART 317

What is memorialized and archived and what is forgotten? Who produces knowledge and what counts as knowledge? How is history racialized and how are racial histories told? Reading literary texts, autobiography, and film, we will use historical and cultural studies approaches to examine how official and unofficial discourses deal with memory, violence, silence, haunting, history, and subjectivity. Topics may include U.S. empire and war, slavery, and colonialism.

Sign up now as this class will not be offered again until 2026-2027 at the earliest. 

It’s often an excellent mix of undergrad and graduate students. This course meets the requirements for (DIV) Diversity, (SSc) Social Science AND (A&H) Arts and Humanities. Students who do not meet the pre-requisites should come to class the first day and/or contact Professor Linh Thủy Nguyễn for an add code.
