Monumental Denial with Dr. Laura Pulido
Monumental Denial: Cultural Memory, the Denial of White Supremacy, & U.S. Territory
In this talk Dr. Laura Pulido explores how U.S. cultural memory represents processes of white supremacy and settler colonization. Based on an analysis of National Historical Landmarks, she found that the vast majority of Landmarks erase histories of white supremacy and settler colonization, with significant implications for how we think of the development of U.S. territory.
