10th Annual Sarah Lundberg Summer School

24 Jun 2024
Summer school

This year's Sarah Lundberg Summer School, now in its tenth year, will explore the concept of commemoration, remembrance and celebration.

  • Who decides what is remembered and how we remember it?
  • Are all commemorations of equal importance, and can remembrance ever be truly neutral, or is there always an underlying agenda?
  • Does history dictate how we commemorate the past, or do our commemorations shape how we view history?

Engaging Presentations

The event will feature two insightful presentations:

  1. "The Ups and Downs of Dublin's Statues" by Hugo McGuinness of the East Wall History Group.
  2. "We’ve Put Up More Than We’ve Pulled Down: The Fall of Colston and the Memorial Landscape of Bristol" with special guests Roger Ball and Mark Steeds from the Bristol Radical History Group and Countering-Colston.
