Weyerhaeuser Memorial Chapel

Prize-winning historian Carol Gluck speaks on "Past Obsessions: World War II in History and Memory."

Nearly 70 years after it ended, the Second World War remains a contested issue in history and memory. How do examples from Europe, Asia, and the United States help us to understand both how public memory works and also the challenge that the present preoccupation with memory poses to what we used to think of as history?

Carol Gluck is George Sansom Professor of History and Professor of East Asian Language and Cultures at Columbia University. Professor Gluck writes on modern Japan and East Asia, 20th century global history, World War II, and the history-writing, and public memory. 

Everyone is welcome.
