2019 Annual Lecture

Sunday, April 28, 2019 from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm


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.

Sun­day, April 28, 2019 at 2 p.m.
St. Louis Pub­lic Library, Cen­tral Library’s Auditorium

Lec­ture is FREE and open to the pub­lic. Reser­va­tions are not required. Street park­ing is free on Sundays.
