Multidirectional Memories, Implicated Subjects and the Possibilities of Art

Saturday, November 14, 2020 | 12:00 PM

Virtual Event

In this lecture and conversation Michael Rothberg, the 1939 Society Samuel Goetz Chair in Holocaust Studies and professor of English and comparative literature at the University of California, Los Angeles, will discuss his books "Multidirectional Memory" and "The Implicated Subject" with a focus on contemporary artworks and possibilities for critical curatorial practices in museums.

Following the lecture Rothberg will join Washington University professors Anika Walke (history) and Geoff Ward (African and African-American Studies) in conversation about Memory for the Future, a Washington University initiative that combines critical memory studies with curatorial and public education projects. In partnership with museums, archives and commemorative projects, this initiative will facilitate reparative and multidirectional memorial practices in St. Louis.

This program is a collaboration among the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, the Center for the Humanities at Washington University, and the Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity & Equity.

The program will include live closed captions in English.

The lecture is free, but registration is required. Register here >>
