Description from the event website:
History and memory overlap, and when they do, they provide a fascinating field of study—one that has garnered growing attention as of late. The 2018 NCHE Conference Myth, Memory, and Monuments seeks to explore the history of how people have remembered the past, how they have used those memories to express their beliefs and values, and how memories have become the tussling ground of different peoples and different members of a society. Texas, the site of our 2018 meeting, is a place rich with examples of contested memories.
