In Search of Our Times Lecture: The History of Forgetting

In Search of Our Times Lecture: The History of Forgetting
Sunday, January 12, 2020
2 p.m.: Reception
3 p.m.: Lecture

In Search of Our Times is presented as part of Wende Conversations: A Discussion Series Supported by Susan Horowitz and Rick Feldman. Click here to learn about the other discussions in the series.
