Webinar: What Does it Take to be Remembered?

Following an introduction by HU alumna Beth Singer ’78, Professor Vinitzky-Seroussi described five dimensions—time, space, agents of memory, institutionalization, and culture—that shape the way we remember the past. Using historical and current examples, including Rosa Parks, Anne Frank, and the musical Hamilton, Professor Vinitzky-Seroussi highlighted that collective memory focuses on who we are today, not just on the past, and that it is subject to change. The engaging lecture concluded with a Q&A session with participants.
