Society & Culture:History
Memorials, names and ethical remembering
How do we remember the past? What place do colonial memorials have in public spaces? How can we better represent diverse histories in the landscape?
In this first Public History Talk for 2020, Professor of Māori education at Victoria University, Joanna Kidman hosts a panel to discuss these issues and offer a facilitated conversation with the public on colonial memorials, history and memory.
