McLoughlin, Kate (2010) Introduction. In: Anderson, E. and Maddrell, A. and McLoughlin, Kate and Vincent, A. (eds.) Memory, Mourning, Landscape. At the Interface/Probing the Boundaries 71. Amsterdam, The Netherlands: Rodolpi, iX-xiii. ISBN 9789042030862.
This volume sheds twenty-first-century light on the charged interactions between memory, mourning and landscape. A century after Freud, our understanding of how memory and mourning function continues to be challenged, revised and refined. Increasingly, scholarly attention is paid to the role of situation in memorialising, whether in commemorations of individuals or in marking the mass deaths of late modern warfare and disasters. Memory, Mourning, Landscape offers the nuanced insights provided by interdisciplinarity in nine essays by leading and up-and-coming academics from the fields of history, museum studies, literature, anthropology, architecture, law, geography, theology and archaeology. The vital visual element is reinforced with an illustrated coda by a practising artist. The result is a unique symbiotic dialogue which will speak to scholars from a range of disciplines.
