“Remembering and Forgetting with Memorials” and “Through Sailor’s Eyes”

“Remembering and Forgetting with Memorials”

Students and visitors alike are often unaware that there are two highly visible war memorials on the UA campus, each commemorating aspects of the twentieth century’s largest conflicts. Professor Susan Crane, UA Department of History, questions how memorials participate in both remembering and forgetting major events or historical personages. Rather than sounding alarm bells about memory lapses or insisting on any particular memory imperative, this discussion centers on how memorials’ meanings change over time.

“Through Sailors’ Eyes: Exploring the History of the USS Arizona Through Primary Resources”

Special Collections Director Steve Hussman explores primary resource materials including diaries, photographs, and other materials that convey the sailor’s life on a battleship, and discusses the reasons for their importance in research, cultural preservation, and community legacy.
