On March 28 I will take part in a webinar sponsored by the American Association for State and Local History on the ongoing controversy surrounding Confederate monuments and iconography. This grew out of a panel on the same topic that I took part in back in September at the AASLH’s annual meeting in Knoxville.
This webinar is free for AASLH members and $40 for non-members. Other participants include Bob Beatty, Stan Deaton, and Sheffield Hale.
While I suspect that the direction of the discussion will be geared to the challenges facing public historians working at various historic sites and institutions, it should be of interest to anyone who has been thinking about questions concerning how we remember the Civil War in public spaces.
I am very much looking forward to the discussion.
