Decentralizing the national narrative
Fri., Sept 24 * 11 AM ET * Live at The Shed & on Clubhouse
History Club is live from New York this week as we team up with Unfinished Live, a two-day tech festival at Hudson Yards, New York City.
Decentralizing the National Narrative
This week’s conversation topic will be “Decentralizing the National Narrative.”
Perhaps, at one point, a tidy national narrative of American history existed. Today, our knowledge of the American past is fragmented across traditional media, social media, university classrooms and different regions of the country.
What are the consequences of a “decentralized” national narrative? Was there ever a centralized narrative? If so, how did it emerge? If it’s gone, what has replaced it?
