Facing the Past to Forge the Future

06 Oct 2021

We are very pleased to be co–hosting an upcoming webinar with The Ohio State University’s Mershon Center and Ulster University. 

Harvard Law School professor Martha Minow identifies a tension that every society must confront in the aftermath of political violence and oppression: “too much memory and too much forgetting.” She contends both ends of this spectrum hold the potential to derail the possibility of forging a just and shared future. 

In this webinar, Minow and moderator Dr. Duncan Morrow will hold a public conversation about what it means to face the past, how to find the balance between acknowledgement and taking responsibility for injustice, while – at the same time – turning toward the possibility of transformation and social healing.

6 October, 4.30–5.30 on Zoom.
