This presentation by Dr. Jordan Brasher was delivered as a part of the Fall 2020 Virtual Speaker Series on "Southern Confederacy & Memorialization" in the History & Geography Department at Columbus State University. Dr. Brasher discusses the transnational uses of the embattled Confederate flag, especially where and why it flies abroad, in the context of the ongoing global struggle to come to terms with the histories and memories of slavery, indigenous dispossession, settler colonialism, and other forms of white supremacy. The presentation especially explores how the Confederate flag becomes embedded into local cultural fabrics around the world in places like Ireland, Germany, and Brazil, igniting social tensions and inflaming historic traumas.
