Guantánamo Public Memory Project

Guantánamo Public Memory Project

Presented by McKissick Museum at McKissick Museum

The Guantanamo Public Memory Project tells the history of the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, from its establishment in 1898 to the present. In tracing this history, visitors will explore how changes in the Naval Base’s use have embodied cultural, political, and legal trends in American history. As part of the exhibition, people affiliated with GTMO share their memories of the place, both positive and negative, as the exhibition seeks to foster an on-going dialogue about the future of GTMO and the policies it shapes. Students from USC’s Public History Program curated three smaller exhibitions on related research topics that will be displayed in concert with Guantanamo Public Memory Project.  The exhibition is sponsored in part by the Department of History and the Walker Institute for International and Area Studies.
