The past is present, everywhere: historians, politicians, museum curators, journalists and internet commentators all provide different versions of it. Historical events are constantly remembered, celebrated, reimagined, trivialised, repressed and forgotten. This influences communities’ and individuals’ values, identities, beliefs and practices. This course analyses and explores how major historical events have been appropriated, contested and denied for political, cultural and economic gain, and encourages students to reflect on the crucial role historians can play.
