A presentation from 2023–2024 Frieda L. Miller Fellow Valentina Rozas-Krause

At Radcliffe, Rozas-Krause is working on “Memorials and the Cult of Apology,” which examines the role that memorials play in symbolic and material reparation after political conflicts. Through case studies located in Berlin, Buenos Aires, Detroit, and San Francisco, the book builds an empirical and theoretical understanding of multiple aspects of apology and memorialization, of their material forms, the actors involved, and the diverse effects built apologies produce. The work incorporates methods, readings, and theories postcolonial theory, Holocaust scholarship, and debates about reparation.
