Multi-Country: Rhetorics of Remembering in Germany, Czech Republic, France, and Poland

Tour four of Europe’s most beautiful cities—Berlin, Krakow, Prague, and Paris—as you hone your writing abilities. This program’s essential question is How do cultures use public acts of remembering to construct their histories? To shape cultures? As we travel across Europe we’ll examine a wide variety of public acts of remembering including memoirs, museums, monuments, and historic sites. The majority of the sites we’ll encounter are connected to the Holocaust and World War II—events that had and continue to have global ramifications.
