Kristin Ann Hass is an associate professor in the Department of American Culture and Director of the Humanities Collaboratory at the University of Michigan. She has written “Sacrificing Soldiers on the National Mall,” a study of militarism, race, war memorials and U.S. nationalism, and “Carried to the Wall: American Memory and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial” (both published by the University of California Press), an exploration of public memorial practices and the legacies of the Vietnam War. Her forthcoming book, “Taking the Price of Freedom Seriously,” is a study of turn-of-the-20th-century public investment in and narratives about U.S. militarism and nationalism.
