Does the past have a future? The future of Anniversaries
The emphasis on anniversaries in the contemporary world invites us to reflect on the present as a moment when selected pasts are mobilised for potential futures – for individuals, for institutions and for communities.
At this public discussion, Annabel Tiffin (Producer and Presenter on BBC North-West Tonight), Joseph Payne (Assistant Curator of the Royal Mint Museum), Michael Hughes (Professor of History, Lancaster University) and Chris May (FASS Associate Dean, Enterprise and External Linkages) will debate the interface of celebration, controversy, responsibility, commercialisation, navel gazing and nostalgiaEmail us to register to attend Add to my calendar
