Live Webinar: AASLH Conversations: Monuments and Memory
- Registration Closed
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented crisis in our local communities, country, and world. Many are seeking answers and guidance during this time, and AASLH has been listening to the concerns from the history community. In response, we are offering more online content including the new AASLH Conversations webinar series. While no one has all the answers, we hope these topic-focused conversations will provide a space to share ideas to help us all keep moving forward.
We know many organizations are facing financial strain due to the pandemic, so we developed AASLH Conversations with that in mind. We have drastically reduced the registration fee and are also providing a special promo code to waive the registration fee completely.
This conversation has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
In this webinar, Ashleigh Lawrence-Sanders of the University of Dayton, Estevan Rael-Galvez of Creative Strategies 360°, and Todd Groce of the Georgia Historical Society will address the connections between the current wave of protests and the nation's rapidly changing commemorative landscape.
