Inventory of the Memoryscape: Remembering and Narrating Conflict: resources for doing historical memory work

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

The term memoryscape captures the “universe” of memory as inscribed in the landscape. This universe is comprised of places, street names, sites of massacres, mass graves, symbols and foundational legends (Weah, 2010). Both the visible and invisible markers tell a story about what happened or provide an historical interpretation (or context) to some of the root causes to the violence and/or war. Weaved together they capture the public imagination of what happened, and help to reveal the source of peoples’ pain, agitation, and desire for accountability.
