    Facing death, reflecting on one’s legacies (material and ethical, personal and political) and the legal and interpersonal attempts to resolve or prevent inheritance conflicts, all bring to the fore constructions of memory and identity, intergenerational relations, and the complexities of doing and undoing family and kinship.
