History, Historians, and Public Memory: A conversation with Danielle Allen and Jill Lepore

Join Mass Humanities and two of the nation’s most prominent humanities scholars in a conversation about history, historians, and public memory.

Two of the nation’s leading scholars join together for their first onstage conversation. Danielle Allen and Jill Lepore will explore the role of historians in society, and the importance of history in a democracy. How can the study of the past inform a nation grappling with issues of identity, citizenship, and misinformation? In an era of contentious debates about historical events and figures, what forces influence public memory?
