Laura Pulido

Another GES co-sponsored talk.  In this talk, Laura Pulido will explore how. U.S. cultural memory represents processes of white supremacy and settler colonization. Based on an analysis of National Historical Landmarks, Pulido found that 92% of all National Landmarks deny histories of white supremacy and settler colonization through a variety of means.
