Presenters to discuss new and future directions for public memory of California History
I would like to discuss how the history of California is presented in spaces of public memory such as museums, historical societies, battleground sites (Mexican-American War in California), ranchos, etc. I would like to discuss how these sites can be more accurate and instructive for the future. The new history and social science framework for California history has set out new directions such as NOT building missions in 4th grade in favor of presenting a more complicated mission history. This is but one example of a topic in this proposed forum.
