Stand for Racial Justice Workshop: Statues, Fascists and Memory: The Use and Abuse of History (part of the Navigating a Polarized World series of the SFRJ Task Force III)

David Redles, Professor, History, Western Campus
Matthew Phillips, Assistant Professor, History,
Metropolitan Campus

The past matters. It informs every discussion of every
social tension we experience. Yet our understanding of
the past is not set in stone. Often, especially when it’s
part of political discourse, history exists in the realm
of imagination or mythology — a way for people to
validate their own points of view, raise themselves up
and lower others. How do we separate myth from real
historical analysis? Is it possible to develop a nuanced
understanding of the past that bypasses bias and helps
us better navigate the present?
