Please join us forthe second annual Graduate Symposium in Memory Studies. This is a graduate-student led project organized by the Initiative in Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies to foster dialogue at UIUC about memory studies, broadly conceived. We are thrilled that our keynote speaker is Nafissa Thompson-Spires (Creative Writing and HGMS). Nafissa is the author of the fantastic book, The Heads of Colored People, which has been widely reviewed (including in the New York Times) and featured on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
Her talk will be at 10am on Friday March 1. The symposium and keynote will be held at the Levis Faculty Center, 919 West Illinois Street, Urbana, Room 210 from 8:30am until 5:00pm on Friday, March 1
