We’re pleased to offer live-streaming of these 2 keynotes of our “Capstone” Conference. Join us online, central standard time, for:
Friday, October 13 at 7pm Jonathan Lear, “Gettysburg”
Includes a brief Q & A session.
Is there room for an ethical inquiry into the meaning of the events of the summer and autumn of 1863 in Gettysburg Pennsylvania, after the famous battle? Did something go primordially wrong in our attempts to bury the dead and find ways to memorialize them? And do the dead haunt Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address? This talk is an inquiry into difficulties we face as we try to remember, memorialize and commemorate.
