Columbia University Morningside Campus International Affairs Building, Marshall D. Shulman Seminar Room (1219)
Please join the Harriman Institute for a lecture by John-Paul Himka, Professor in the Department of History and Classics, University of Alberta. "Encumbered Memory" examines four recent, very different works on the Ukrainian famine (Holodomor) in order to take stock of what is happening in the memory discourse. Among the issues broached are sacralization, nationalization, xenophobia and anti-Semitism, and troublesome links with Holocaust memory.
