“Violence and Public Memory” Discussion Hosted by CRRJ

On April 3, 2024, CRRJ invited Martin Blatt, Northeastern Professor Emeritus and editor of the new collection, Violence and Public Memory, and volume contributor Maria John, Assistant Professor at UMass Boston, to discuss chapters from this title, published in 2023.

Violence and Public Memory investigates the complex relationship between violence and how it is publicly remembered.

Students, faculty and CRRJ staff crowded the suite on the third floor of Dockser Hall to hear the authors’ examination of violence and memory in various political ideologies and structures, including apartheid, fascism, homophobia, and military dictatorships.

The initiatives of Black Lives Matter and state terrorism, common themes in many of the studies included in the collection, were addressed.
