Melissa Bender Publishes an Edited Collection in Routledge's Global Public History Series

 Melissa Bender has published the edited collection Contested Commemoration in U.S. History: Diverging Public Interpretations in Routledge's new Global Perspectives on Public History series. Against the backdrop of two recent socio-political developments—the shift from the Obama to the Trump administration and the surge in nationalist and populist sentiment that ushered in the current administration—Contested Commemoration in U.S. History presents eleven essays focused on practices of remembering contested events in America’s national history.
