Primary Instructor:

Recent examples of monuments/memorials require that we understand how discourses, representations, and practices of memory, history, and politics impact the social production of space and the making of the built environment. Rather than position history/memory as binaries, this mini-seminar examines the different ways that time and space are correlated toward political ends. The weekly discussions in this mini-course will be prompted by short commentaries in a recent issue of the journal October 165 along with additional readings from key theorists in philosophy, critical theory, memory studies, art history and architectural history.
