Dear Veradale Friends and Members,
This is so exciting!

This session between Dr. Susan Neiman and faculty and students in the Pacific Northwest on memorialization and memory will allow the audience to engage directly with Dr. Neiman. Dr. Neiman will introduce her path to her most recent research on coming to terms with the racist pasts in Germany and the United States, grassroots movements that got Germans talking, and where her research took her in her search for understanding. Audience members can ask lingering questions, discuss how their professors have incorporated Dr. Neiman’s work into their courses, and ask larger questions about their own interests in relation to memory and memorialization as well as other topics raised in spring’s regional programming. Dr. Neiman is the author of several books including Learning from the Germans: Race and the Memory of Evil.
