Radcliffe on the Road

Memories, Monuments, and Moments of Forgetting

Exploring Cultural Memory with the Radcliffe Institute

The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, the Harvard Alumni Association, and the Harvard Club of New York City invite you to join us for a lively discussion about the dynamics and politics of cultural memory with members of the Radcliffe Institute community of faculty and fellows.

What do societies remember about past events, and what do they forget? How do the artifacts of memory—history, monuments, and buildings—shape individual and collective cultural identity?
