HOTCUS Winter Symposium: Memory and History in the Twentieth-Century United States (Canterbury Christ Church University)

February 21, 2015

The 2015 HOTCUS Winter Symposium will focus on the issue of “Memory and History in the Twentieth-Century United States”. It will take place at Canterbury Christ Church University on Saturday 21 February 2015, and the keynote speaker will be Professor John Howard of King’s College London.

Keynote Speaker: Professor John Howard (King’s College London)

A series of recent historical anniversaries – of the Civil War, World War I, the March on Washington, and the assassination of John F. Kennedy, to name only four – have drawn renewed attention to the significance of remembrance in American history. At the same time, and on both sides of the Atlantic, controversial debates have taken place about school and college history curricula, and their relationship to the shaping of national identity. In response to these issues, the 2015 HOTCUS Winter Symposium will focus on the issue of “Memory and History in the Twentieth-Century United States”.
