          About This Event

          Summary

           

          “Why Guantanamo?” Exhibition

          In fall semester 2012, 21 graduate students in the Museum Studies and Public History programs at the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI created two panels for the exhibition Why Guantánamo?  They were part of a group of 100 students from 11 universities who curated this traveling exhibition. Students were responsible for researching, writing, and selecting the images for the panels. Those in the “Introduction to Museum Studies” class produced the panel “Arts of Detention,” and students in the “Guantánamo Project” class produced the panel “Guantánamo Hits Home.”  Students also wrote blog entries and created digital projects which can be found on the Guantánamo Public Memory  Project website: gitmomemory.org.

           

          The Guantánamo Public Memory Project

          First launched in 2009 by the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience, the Guantánamo Public Memory Project aims to build public awareness of the long history of the US naval station at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba by generating dialogue about the future of this place and the policies it shapes. The project additionally seeks to foster intense and ongoing debates over critical issues around “remembering” Guantánamo: Does looking at the past distract from current issues? How can we build a public memory of a place so few people can see? How can we open dialogue on an issue that is so divisive?

          The GPMP is a collaboration of universities, organizations, and individuals, coordinated from Columbia University’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights. Liz Ševčenko is the director of the GPMP. The project includes a traveling  exhibit, oral histories, curricula, public dialogues, and other resources.
