About this product
- DescriptionMemorializing Pearl Harbor examines the challenge of representing history at the site of the attack that brought America into World War II. Analyzing moments in which history is re-presented-in commemorative events, documentary films, museum design, and educational programming-Geoffrey M. White shows that the memorial to the Pearl Harbor bombing is t a fixed or singular institution. Rather, it has become a site in which many histories are performed, validated, and challenged. In addition to valorizing military service and sacrifice, the memorial has become a place where Japanese veterans have come to seek recognition and reconciliation, where Japanese Americans have sought to correct narratives of racial mistrust, and where Native Hawaiians have challenged their ongoing erasure from their own land. Drawing on extended ethgraphic fieldwork, White maps these struggles onto larger controversies about public history, museum practices, and national memory.
