In this series of discussions we will examine the relationship between memory and the state of Detroit from a psychological, historical and societal perspective.

On Weds April 22: sociologist Martin Murray will talk about the social construction and impact of collective memory, and the political, practical and ethical dimensions of dealing with the remembrance of a painful and unjust past. The discussion will use Martin's extensive research on "commemorating and forgetting" in post-apartheid South Africa as an analogy through which to approach contemporary issues in Detroit.

Martin Murray is a professor of urban planning at the University of Michigan. He began his lengthy and distinguished academic career as sociologist with a strong foundation in urban geography. His current research engages the fields of urban studies and planning, global urbanism, cultural geography, distressed urbanism, development, historical sociology, and African studies. He is the author of numerous books including "Commemorating and Forgetting: Challenges for the New South Africa."
