L97 GS (IAS) 4264Memory for the Future4.0 Units
Description:This seminar course will create spaces and practices of education, commemoration, and collaboration that rest on a dialogue between collectives impacted and implicated by these varied but related histories. The course leverages the concept of "multidirectional memory" to develop new forms of humanities education and practical public history. This concept emphasizes the productivity of commemorating different yet related histories of mass violence, such as the Holocaust, slavery, apartheid, and colonialism if and when they confront each other in the public sphere. The principal aims are to explore, enrich, and sustain the global and local focus of "reparative memorial practices" in St. Louis. By focusing on commemorative efforts through public memorials, monuments, and especially museums, this course will engage survivors, activists, institutional leaders, and scholars (students and faculty) in the development of educational materials, artistic representations, exhibitions, and other approaches to bringing the past into the present, supporting the efforts of local and regional venues to end racism, antisemitism, homophobia, and their related violence through multidirectional memory work. Alongside classroom-based instruction focusing on discussing scholarship and acquiring practical and curatorial skills, students will work with several area institutions to apply their study of multidirectional memory. This practicum is an integral part of the course and requires students to leave campus and work with one of several partners, including the St. Louis Holocaust Museum and Learning Center, the George B. Vashon Museum, the Missouri Historical Society, and the Reparative Justice Coalition of St. Louis.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
