Film Screening and Discussion: "The Destruction of Memory"

Wednesday, February 13, 2019 • 5:30 PM • Law School 3037Duke Law Events

"Over the past century, cultural destruction has wrought catastrophic results across the globe. This war against culture is not over - it's been steadily increasing. Based on the book of the same name by Robert Bevan, 'The Destruction of Memory' tells the whole story, revealing the decisions of the past that allowed the issue to remain hidden in the shadows for so many years." Following the film, director Tim Slade will share updates, including legislation and court decisions and Prof. Maurizio Forte, Department of Classical Studies, will discuss the link between historical examples of cultural destruction and contemporary issues, both in the United States and internationally. The event is part of the Human Rights in Practice series presented by the International Human Rights Clinic and the Center for International and Comparative Law.
