The Politics of Memorials

 
  6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Memorials have been fiercely debated in recent times. What roles do memorials play in a society and how do these acts of remembering contribute to a communities’ sense of identity? What gets remembered and what forgotten, and who decides? When, if ever, should memorials be removed?

The panel will discuss past and present controversies around public memorializing, from Ground Zero to Confederate monuments, from Rhodes Must Fall to Trafalgar Square.

Michelle Codrington-Rogers is an activist and Junior Vice-President of the NASUWT.

Margaret O’Callaghan is Reader in History at Queen’s University Belfast.

Rahul Rau is Senior Lecturer in Politics at SOAS.

Sarah Fine (@DrSJFine) is a Fellow at the Forum for Philosophy and Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at KCL.

The Forum for European Philosophy (@ForumPhilosophy) is an educational charity that organises a full and varied programme of philosophy and interdisciplinary events in the UK.
