Joyce Apsel will be at the Tamiment Library on Thursday February 18 (6:00-7:30 PM). Her presentation is entitled “Refuse to Forget, Refuse to Take Revenge”: The Guernika Peace Museum: Memory, Art and Reconciliation.” The lecture is sponsored by the Frederic Ewen Center.
Joyce is a Master Teacher of Humanities in the Liberal Studies Program at NYU and a recipient of the NYU Distinguished Teaching Award. She is President of the Institute for the Study of Genocide and Executive Board member of the International Network of Museums for Peace. Recent publications include two edited volumes on museums for peace and with Ernesto Verdeja, Genocide Matters: Ongoing Issues and New Perspectives.
Her book Introducing Peace Museums traces a distinct group of museums whose content and activities focus on culture of peace and include anti-war and anti-nuclear messages. Peace museums are the repositories of the material culture of peace, including art, banners, and petitions of social justice movements fostering nonviolence, disarmament and conflict resolution.
