The Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy at Temple University is proud to present Dr. Ari Kelman as part of our Spring 2015 Colloquia Series.

Ari Kelman will be discussing his book 'A Misplaced Massacre: Struggling Over the Memory of Sand Creek' (winner of the 2014 Bancroft Prize). For nearly a century and a half, the Sand Creek Massacre has been at the center of struggles over history and memory in the American West: from the government investigations launched in the massacre's immediate aftermath; to the controversial work of so-called Indian reformers, writing late in the nineteenth century; to memorials erected in Colorado during the Cold War; to the impact of popular histories, including Dee Brown's Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee; to the recently opened Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site. Kelman, McCabe Greer Professor of History at the The Pennsylvania State University will discuss the meaning and impact of the longstanding fight to shape and control memories of Sand Creek.
