SAT-B06 - Landscapes of Conflict and Memory

Saturday, October 20
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: 120


Landscapes and memory are inextricably connected, often with great emotional resonance. Conflict, from ancient times to the present, is written on the land. Although a palimpsest, sometimes what remains on the land is, in today's parlance, an "alternative fact." This presentation examines the phenomena of conflict, landscape, and memory.
