Conflicts over (mis)representations of historical events have long been a concern of scholars in multiple disciplines. However, the recent shift in the U.S. political climate—most notably, the shift from the Obama to the Trump administration—warrants fresh approaches to the ways in which historical preservation is practiced. To this end, we seek proposals for essays to be included in an edited volume exploring the manner in which U.S. history is preserved, sanitized, or contested through monuments, memorial sites, museums, and print or audio-visual texts.

This session especially welcomes essays that make connections between Victorian empire and Hawai'i.

The PAMLA 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.
