Book Examines How Violent Legacies Affect Concept of Nation

June 2, 2021

Anthropology Professor Robin Maria DeLugan has published a new book titled "Remembering Violence: How Nations Grapple With Their Difficult Pasts." The book examines how commemorations of 1930s violence in El Salvador, Spain and the Dominican Republic bring attention to 20th century dictatorship and authoritarianism. DeLugan argues that the focus on historical memory is an attempt to confront and also transform the meaning of national belonging.

DeLugan will discuss the case studies, as well as the lessons that may apply to the Central Valley and the United States, during a virtual event on Thursday, June 3, at 6 p.m. People can register for the free event online.
