Webinar: What Does it Take to be Remembered?

      Join us to hear from Professor Vered Vinitzky-Seroussi, who will focus on the dimensions that shape the way we remember the past. She will discuss five major dimensions: time, space, agents of memory, institutionalization, and culture – all of which are critical to construct and maintain a specific collective memory.
