History has come to the forefront of several cultural debates recently, from the role of public monuments and statues to the character of Critical Race Theory and its impact on education. To address these issues, UW-Green Bay’s History program, in collaboration with several other organizations, has organized a series of events titled Learning from History and will explore the role of history in contemporary culture in terms of history as a discipline, historical memory, the place of historical monuments, Critical Race Theory, how history is taught, and what we learn from history. More information on the series is available here:
The series start’s Wednesday 9/15 with a virtual screening of C. J. Hunt’s The Neutral Ground. This screening is made possible by the Green Bay Film Society and PBS POV. The film will be presented by Professor Dan Kallgren. Dan will follow up the following week with a discussion of Adam Domby’s recent book, The False Cause: Fraud, Fabrication, and White Supremacy in Confederate Memory on Thursday 9/23 at 6:00 pm.
Please join us for a series of discussions that seek to make sense of these debates and their impact on our understanding of history.
