For inquiries, please contact the Babson Faculty Research Fund.


The chapter entitled “Statism, Temporality, and Collective Memory: The Politics of the Calendar” sets out my theoretical approach to analyzing the politics of time, colonialism and race in white settler nations. The chapter looks the politics of the calendar as a way to demonstrate the value of my theoretical approach. The chapter entitled “Shouldn’t we love him not that he loves us?” examines the U.S. collective memory of Martin Luther King Jr. as expressed and debated in relation to the planning and development of the MLK National Memorial presently being constructed on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
