60 Years Later: The JFK Tragedy Revisited Through Film
with Dr. John A. Gronbeck-Tedesco
Monday, November 13th, 2023
Presented in-person and online.
Registration required for virtual attendance and strongly urged for in-person attendance, as space is limited.
To commemorate the 60th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Dr. John Gronbeck-Tedesco, an Associate Professor of American Studies at Ramapo College, will take a look back at both American history and memory. This program will use Oliver Stone’s 2021 documentary, JFK Revisited, as the foundation to explore the complex ways that “truth” and “history” can generate both confusion and clarity. Due to JFK Revisited’s length- two hours- we request that participants view the film beforehand. It can be rented on Amazon Prime and is also available through the Mahwah Library interlibrary loan system.
John A. Gronbeck-Tedesco is Associate Professor of American Studies at Ramapo College of New Jersey. He is recently the author of the book Operation Pedro Pan: The Migration of Unaccompanied Children from Castro’s Cuba (Potomac Books). His writing has appeared in American Quarterly, Journal of Latin American Studies, as well as the online outlets Slate Magazine, Washington Post, Talking Points Memo, and a variety of others. He lives in New York City.
This is a hybrid event and will be presented in-person and virtually over Zoom.
