Lessons from the Byzantine Past Relevant to an American Future

Why, for the last several years around the world, have some people wanted to defend, but some others want to remove, statues of Civil War generals, or British colonialists, or Belgian kings? Is it right to remove statues and rewrite history? What does it mean to take statues down and view the past differently? This lecture will first explore whether Byzantine fights over "iconoclasm" have lessons for today before turning to an examination of recent scholarship in historiography, memory studies, and traumatology, concluding with some guiding principles for how to think about removing statues and re-envisaging history.
