Subject : “The Stages of Memory at Ground Zero,” with James Young 
Detail : Professor James Young believes that the World Trade Center Memorial began with the first flyers of lost loved ones, with the first candlelight vigils at Union Square and the laying of flowers around New York City. It continued with the devastating pile of debris and search and rescue operations, cleanup and salvage operations, the reconstruction of the void at the heart of Ground Zero and the public arbitration of the new site design through the public process of the memorial competition. Young is a distinguished university professor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He was appointed to the commission for Germany’s Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in 1997. He has also consulted with Argentina’s government on its memorial to the desaparecidos, as well as with numerous city agencies on their memorials and museums. Most recently, he was appointed to the jury for the World Trade Center Site Memorial competition. Tickets are $5 for HMH members, seniors and students and $8 for nonmembers. Seating is limited, and advance registration is requested. To RSVP online, visit www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx.
