White Supremacist Violence and Collective Memory in Germany (10/27/21)
Join us on WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2021, at NOON for a virtual lecture—White Supremacist Violence and Collective Memory in Germany—by Anna Meier, Assistant Professor in the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of Nottingham. Moderated by Jessica Stern, Research Professor at BU’s Pardee School of Global Studies.
In the wake of the Christchurch massacre and the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, policymakers have frequently turned to Germany as the prototypical example of a country that has previously reckoned with white supremacist violence. Yet the frequent invocation of German memory culture as a blueprint for other countries to aspire to papers over contention, hostility, and at times outright refusal to reckon with white supremacy itself. A closer look at the limits of remembrance and social change in Germany reveals implications for the design of security institutions today as they confront rising support for white supremacist violence in the 21st century.
