Taking Possession: The Politics of Memory at The Campbell House
Presented by Dr. Heidi Aronson Kolk
In Taking Possession, Dr. Kolk explores the complex motivations for safeguarding the Campbell House as a site of public memory in an otherwise fragmented and turbulent city. The lecture illuminates some of the processes by which civic pride and cultural solidarity have been manufactured at the site over more than 168 years, showing how closely linked are the acts of
memory and forgetting, nostalgia and shame.
