"Memory: Lewis and Clark in Yellowstone, circa 2004"

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Drawing on Walter Benjamin's concept of history as literary montage, "Memory: Lewis and Clark in Yellowstone, circa 2004" interrogates the place of memory in the bicentennial celebrations of the Lewis and Clark expedition of 1804-06. Quoting from historical documents, I attempt to crack the racist facade that surrounds Lewis and Clark and the place of their project in our national imagination.
