Public Pedestals: Confederate Monuments and their Legacies”
Jacqueline Reynoso, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of History
Abstract: In recent years, Confederate monuments have fallen under greater scrutiny throughout the U.S. With Americans debating both their purpose and legacies, the question of removing these monuments from public spaces has sparked numerous questions of its own, most of which concern the use of public space as well as the difference between history and memory. This talk will seek to address these questions by placing these monuments in historical context. It will examine the circumstances surrounding the creation of these public markers, some of which are less than a decade old.
CSUCI hosts more than a dozen free public lectures from February through May at libraries throughout Ventura County.
