    WueGlobal Online Exhibition "Monuments & Memory" in Cooperation with Flagler College


    How do communities and individuals remember? How and why do they forget? What modes of collective memory help us to engage productively with the past? Which practices, in contrast, tend to mythologize and oversimplify history?

    This exhibition documents a collaborative effort to address these and other thorny questions: initially, in the form of an online Global Conversation Seminar with JMU and Flagler College students in summer term 2021 and, consequently, in multimedial project work.

    The three virtual rooms of the exhibition – Media of Memory, Mobilities & Migration, Personal | Public & Local | National – showcase student-developed projects in a variety of media: videocasts, podcasts, and textual-visual essays. We invite visitors to read, listen, watch, and ponder dynamics of remembering and forgetting with us as part of the ongoing Flagler-JMU collaboration in Transatlantic Cultures and Histories.

    This event is part of WueGlobal – Writing, Learning, Digital Connection, funded within the International Virtual Academic (IVAC) - Initiative of the German Academic Exchange Service |  Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdients (DAAD) | Federal Ministry of Education & Research | Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF).
