James E. Young, Distinguished Professor emeritus in English and Judaic and Near Eastern Studies  and founding director of the Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies, has served on juries that selected designs for the 9/11 Memorial and the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin.

In this launch of his new book, The Stages of Memory: Reflections on Memorial Art, Loss, and the Spaces Between, Young will reflect on the expectations that countries bring to their painful memorial debates and discuss other topics.

A book sale and signing will follow this program.


From the main UMass Amherst campus, head north on North Pleasant Street. The Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies is on the left, just past the traffic circle.
